Today my short blog may give you some insight on the fuzzy, furious mind of a writer. Today I completed Tara Lazar’s STORY STORM writing challenge, getting 30 ideas or titles in 30 days from the amazing guest bloggers that greeted me each day this January, 2018.
I’m ready with 5 BEST IDEAS to connect with agents if I’m one of the Grand Prize Winners this year. If not, I sure have plenty of ideas to turn into a manuscript (two drafts already), thanks to Tara’s program.
Yesterday, I still had two blank lines until I remembered that Vivian Kirkfield wrote a sweet story about Sarah. But what if my character was not so sweet? Josh Nash wrote that he is “always on the clock.” Off to the prompt care with my spouse, I grabbed my notebook and wrote a new draft.
Creativity begets more creativity. If you don’t stop, you’ll never run out of ideas. And some will be great.
Most thankful for children’s author, Tara Lazar, who gives inspiration to writers all year on her blog. https://Writing for Kids (While Raising Them).com
Congratulations! I completed the Storystorm challenge, too. Now I’m looking forward to getting down to work on some of those ideas 🙂
Love your post, Pam! And love that you are ready with your ideas! Storystorm has lit a fire under many of us and I can’t wait to see what fabulous books emerge from this year’s challenge.
Sounds like a firestorm of possibility. Happy Writing!
Like your metaphor. The writing does come in storms, then I take lulls to work on platform and search out submission possibilities. Hi ho, hi ho.
