Book In A Year Series: Month 2-Starting The Process. Let’s Talk About Brainstorming

The first rule of writing, which will help you forever, is this: your imagination is yours. And only yours. All the things you dream up, want to create all belong to you. Since this powerful tool belongs to you, the power to create (and destroy) belongs to you. And just you.

With this confidence in mind, I want you to remember that what you create–you (and only you) will see first!

Before you start writing, I want you to get accustom to thinking about what you want to write about. And really begin to think about what you want to create. The more comfortable you are with it, the more you will want to write it down.

Here are some tips to help with brainstorming:

1.) If an idea reoccurs more than twice, that’s a queue to write it down.

2.) Think about the time of day that you feel most productive. Try writing at this time, or recording ideas that reoccur at this time.

3.) Isolate some time to think about what you want to write about. That dedicated time will help with creativity.

4.) Remember to be patient with yourself. Writing is a process. It is a marathon and not a sprint.

It’s only month two–we got a while to go. I believe in you. Keep going.
