Idea Generation

Ideas are brewing in my head, a few too many if you must ask. I need to get them down and mold them a little before I unleash the great purge. This is one of the hardest steps for me because I just want to go and damn all figure it out later.

I’ve learned in the past this is a surefire way to start strong, fade fast, and put it in the pile of started but never materialized ideas. What I do now is this:

  1. Get and idea. Mull it for a few days. Is there anything there? Even if I think no there isn’t I keep it in an idea list. It may show promise later when more of life has been lived.
  2. Write it out. This is the most informal, haphazard outlining you will ever see. But it says to me yes, I can keep this idea going. Even if I know there is a point where my idea runs out, if there is enough material before I can write toward that cliff where like magic, or Minecraft, the way presents itself.
  3. Go! My family loses me. I become a wraith of agitation and annoyance of life’s daily needs in my want to get it on paper.

I’m not sure I’m going to share these yet because I realized I don’t write like that. It’s a hot mess and my chapter’s are not finished, not even usually by the 3rd iteration. But what I will try to do is share parts that are written well that I know will stay.

Here we go, stay tuned.
