Power of brainstorming / Happenings In The Outhouse 02-Nov-2018
I've covered the topic of brainstorming before on this blog.
But I came to a realization this week, about something I've been struggling with for much of this summer. As you know, I've started writing the second romance book (under a pen name) and then put it aside to write a completely new story. Even though the new story is going well with over 8,000 words, I've been hitting roadblocks on where the story is going. I sat back one day to reflect on my writing career up to this point, not once experiencing what I have been now.
Oh, sure, I've hit a rough patch or two in my writing life, but the stories I want to write just don't seem to want to be written. Reflecting on my past, I knew what I had done before that I somehow quit doing.
Not quite outlining, but some may see it as such. I went to work one day, armed with a notebook, and wrote out a few pages of thoughts.
If you ever find yourself in a rut, reflect on what may be the issue. Brainstorm your thoughts. You may be surprised what may happen.
