Brainstorming is one of my favorite parts in writing. Getting the idea and forming the little bugger the way you want can be trying on the patience, but coming up with ways to make your MC suffer--love it. Since I started my new WIP, my brain has had a massive thunderstorm that's constantly spitting out lightning. Yes, I've gotten stuck and will still get stuck in parts, you know when the sun comes out and the storm clears. I've learned to let it sit for a few days because another cold front will come through, stirring up more ideas on how to continue.
Another method I use-- bouncing ideas off of my CP. This is when the storm becomes a super cell. Hopefully, Barnes and Noble has flood insurance. When our brains merge, the flood of ideas will be raining all over. I know this is a silly way of thinking about this, but likeI said, it's my favorite part, because your story can go anywhere, your characters can do anything, nothing is concrete. So fun.
How do you brainstorm?
Have you had any brainstorms lately?
Since I've been brainstorming, my commenting will be slow. Sorry. I can't stop a storm. Have a great day!
