So Many Ideas...So Little Time
As I sat in the early morning coolness of my writing room, story lines and titles popped into my head. I wondered what to do with them. Should I write the story for an anthology? Maybe a novella? How about a short story? Do I keep the idea, reject it, or make notes on it? Decisions like these face writers everyday.
I dug out a notebook and added to the list of titles that have magically come forth and began writing character descriptions. Whether the stories ever comes to fruition or not, I have notes as referral to draw from.
To cram a book with notes is the best way I can think of to keep ideas flowing. Whether its a computer notepad or a physical notebook, ideas should be kept. Consider the notes JK Rowling made and how she scribbled on anything she could find. Her efforts were well worthwhile.
I've heard from my writer friends that titles are the most difficult part of their work. I find the first line of the story is the hardest part.
Now you know how I get my story ideas, how do you get yours?
