Coming This Week!

Week of August 21—Strategies for Finding Ideas for Writing
Quote of the week:
Opportunity waits between things ended and things begun.
—Kobi Yamada

Some folks say ideas are a dime a dozen. The very idea! A new, bright idea is something every writer is searching for. So what’s the big idea about finding ideas? The truth is, finding an idea to inspire your writing isn’t all that easy, and most people don’t have the faintest idea of how to find an idea. This week I’ll float some strategies by you that can inspire you to find new, big ideas. Who knows, you may even come up with a dozen of ‘em!

Monday—Listing Your Way to New Ideas
Tuesday—Using Unexpected Connections to Generate Ideas
Wednesday—What Ifs That Lead to Ideas
Thursday—Growing an Idea from a Title or Topic

I'm always amazed at how a simple idea one week may evolve into a layered idea months or years later. Kind of like kids. Everything develops in its own time. :)
