It all started with a tweet from @MsEmmaWinter:
And we thought, wow, that’s a great question! We bet our talented Twitter followers have some great advice about that.
Sure enough, we got a few fantastic tips for busting through that brainstorming block:
I suggest you write down keywords first. Make an outline. How do you see the story in your head?
Who are your characters? What do they do? How does the setting look like?
As you build the world of your story, listen to music that will help set its mood. Good luck! 🙂
Watch a good movie! I find it helpful to watch a great story to inspire and construct your own. I stole this tip from Don Draper and was surprised how well it works for unclogging the brain.
If the project feels too big, I love the tip to keep a 1 inch photo frame by your writing space and say all I need to do right now is write the words to fill that space. Breaks the process into easy chunks.
Pretty great advice! Do you have any other tips for getting that story out of your head and onto the page? Please post below!
