Brainstorming

(If there is a tag at the end of a sentence or block like [WE-S01E10] that means the information has been harvested from the excellent Writing Excuses podcast).

How to Brainstorm

  • Discover when you come up with ideas, and use that knowledge to your advantage. Some people need others… dramatic music, times of relaxation or when doing something boring. [WE-S01E01]
  • You have to find the balance between being alert, and not distracted. [WE-S01E01]
  • Importantly, as soon as you’ve got the idea write it down. Write it down straight away. [WE-S01E01]
  • When coming up with a story blend an ordinary idea (that people can relate to) with an extraordinary idea (something new). [WE-S01E02]
