Any new story ideas to distract you from your books? Discover what you should do
I can' t help but get off with my sensory perceptions starting to tingle and I always get away with a dozen fantastic new sequences for established tales. Sometimes, like last fortnight, I get away with brand-new storyline notions. However, new storyline concepts can also be stunning and alluring. If a new tale sings to our ear and draws us to new and thrilling play areas, it can be almost hard not to look a little tastelessly at the foxholes of our new work.
We have already seen what this history has to offer us. It will probably not be until thirty years from now that I will be able to write all my latest stories with these new books. Take a few moments to look at the whole proposal in a logical and not emotional way before you turn your nostrils over your relatively lacklustre work-in-progress and run for sparkling new outlooks.
So why do you want to give up your present history in favour of the new one? So what are the real benefits of ending the old history and writing the new one? Does it pay to waste the amount of work you have already put into the work? Is it going to incite nasty customs not to finish tales?
It is my counsel to be tolerant when confronted with new notions. The most wise and prolific course on your present history will remain nine out of ten time. It' simple to start storytelling. Honestly, as precious as good notions are.
That I have enough bright thinking to last thirty years is the literary equivalence of the $3,000,000 I won. It'?s difficult to finish tales. Do not be rash if you give up the work you have already invested in an established history. Never take for granted how important it is to instil in yourself the invaluable custom of how to understand a history to its tiresome end.
As you wait to complete your present history, you can still make good use of this intermediate period to prepare yourself to continue writing these upcoming histories. Suppose you have more than one good plan, the first thing to do is to organise yourself by finding out a possible order in which you could start writing these later on.
Above all, you want to tackle the next storyline and begin to plan it. So the best way to find out which history to write next is to ask which ideas interest you the most? This thrill of a new concept is the ideal dowsing pole to identify your next one.
However, it is also worth asking which of our products are the most competitive. I spend most of my free moments sending my new thoughts to stay tuned until it's their turn. Because you have to sit and sit and wait for your new storyline idea, that doesn't mean you can't work on it.
Nowhere else do I have my own idea but in my mind. It' the only part of their existence where they'll be flawless. So, I enjoy this moment - even if I use it deliberately to bring my idea into its best state.
This is how my pre-writing routines for raw notions work:): The best moments and my best tales are always those that arise from my non-conscious. This requires a lot of work. So, I use this moment to put my idea on hold. So the longer I stay, the more good my idea for a certain storyline.
I don't mean just waiting for you to finish your job. Before you take down something about your new ideas. If I try to catch a child in some way (i.e. by recording it) too early, I find I am losing some of this early energy.
I' m waiting in a week, even a month, sometimes before I take a note about an invention. There' comes only one point at which my instinct says to me that the concept is sound enough to capture it - just a little. In the past I had the well-meaning but completely naive impression that the only stories I could recall without them.
Rewind past a dozen great thoughts down the drain drains and loose bruising from head banging my keypad, aaaaannd-nope, I no longer recommand this. Make sure you take note. I' ll begin with the name. To me, a name is like the case of my history. Can' t get a full grasp on an invention until I at least have a working name.
Normally, the creation of a song is my sign that the concept is "whole" enough for me to consciously take notices. I will always be writing this down, both because it might help to capsule the heart of the storyline I want to tell, and because it's always rewarding to think up the tag lines and any efforts I can spare in the sales area.
Again, I don't want to be brainstorming the whole thing at this point. However, I will sometimes begin with a fundamental premiss just to recall the core of the initial notion. If history has been swimming around in my mind long enough for it to jellify into something with weight and sense, I'm willing to give a brief resume.
It is at this point that I need to know the protagonists, the settings, the antagonistic power and the protagonist of the protagonist conflicts. I' m writing all this information in a backcover copy-like abstract because it makes it sound funnier and more interesting and hopefully to spare me some work later when I actually need a backcover copy.
As you can see on my author's page in the section "Current Writing", the synopses are almost exactly the ones I have written for these works in process when they were in this burgeoning, unconscious, preparatory phase. Here I am going to post every good suggestion I can think of. I' ll keep it short - just enough to keep the basic ideas in mind so that I can remember the feel of the scenes or the temper.
Several of my research data sets for upcoming histories are already very extensive. I have twenty pages of notations for a Tudor-based phantasy triology that I want to create, and I haven't even seriously begun to explore or rethink them. Seldom do I deliberately go looking for humans, places, outfits, animals, cars or weapons during this phase - but I always store everything that looks like it could be used for a certain storyline notion.
Though it is always enticing to hunt for splendid new ideas, get into the custom of inflicting patience and industriousness to your typing work. Take this time of wait to your own benefit so that you can do even better justice to these brilliant notions than if you were to immerse yourself in them right now.
Keep in mind: "Too many good ideas" are no obstacle. When distracted by new storyline thoughts, what is your normal response?
