Tips for writing: Finding and capturing ideas for your novel
Writers are in constant demand, and some are fed up with it, because once you've dealt with collecting and recording your thoughts, they seem to be done by sorcery alone. However, I still recall being a servant and working all days on my draft.
At all I didn't really think I was creating and certainly had no idea. Had to re-educate my mind to begin novel-arting. I' m going to tell you how to find and catch some of the idea and how to handle some general concerns about it. As one writes a novel:
Beginning with the initial concept to the final script. One has to realize what one is inquisitive about and then go into these facets of it. Interested in what attracts your interest. When you sit in a café, why do you see some folks more than others? However, you will see other things than I do about the surrounding environment, and an initial concept begins to take over.
Now if you aren't nosy, you have to try. When you were younger, what were you inquisitive about? Generating ideas is like a man's muscles, a little like going to the fitness studio. But, if you begin with the small weights and you begin to raise those, then over the course of a period of time, you will be able to raise heavier weights. However, if you want to increase the weight of your weight, you can do so.
This applies to all forms of thinking and perhaps also to all forms of creation. Begin small by realizing what you are interested in and all of a sudden you will get notions. You' ve got to be a good writer to fill in your imagination. And I like the artiste date from Julia Cameron's The Artist's Way.
Reserve some self catering and go to a place that will fill your life with something new. It is an artwork galery, a school, a workshop or even just the reading of a new work. Grab a ledger and take down anything you notices. Let us go into a little more detail about the things that can awaken your interest and give you suggestions.
It was the visual sensation in my abdomen as I watched the sample tubes full of parts of my own bodies that triggered the disgrace. Take your notepad and record what you see. Small memorabilia and memorabilia are good at this state and you can use them later. The MacGuffin is the subject the character is looking for in mystery and thriller, and it's fascinating enough to become the centre of the game.
I' m using MacGuffins in most of my textbooks. This was the basic of my novel One Days in Budapest. It is about the ascendancy of the right-wing extremist Nationalist ( "what is really going on in Hungary"), but also about the MacGuffin, the mobilised hands of Saint Istvan. Fifth What is it about humans that intrigues you?
You' ll always need a character for your book. There is one thing about many a character, and when you see someone who would make great personalities, it's good to write down the interesting things about them. I' m currently studying a great deal about naval photography and following my own inquisitiveness, even though I have no particular history in my head.
What would you do if you experienced one of those catastrophes, and then I began to think a deep imagination about the concept. "What-if " issues are often the foundation of a book. It' s 38 years old, but the post-apocalyptic style keeps recurring because folks really wonder what would be happening if this big catastrophe occurred and you were abandoned with a few of your family.
Some" what-if" issues will still be addressed in many future ones.... perhaps yours is one of them? The writers often use quotations as an idea for their stories. I am becoming deaths, destroyers of worlds" is the name of my novel entitled Destryer of World, which comes from the Bhagavad Gita, but was also cited by Oppenheimer during the test of the first nuclear weapon.
A quotation summarizes thoughts about hinduistic deities and the might of an atom bombs and became the foundation of the novel's work. It is a history, not a talk or non-fiction, but many writers use large social themes as a foundation for their own notions. They all have the same basic aspects of the horror of the Holocaust, but the accounts can end quite differently.
Kobo ordered the tales for the publication of Dan Brown's Inferno a few years ago. Dante's inferno is no longer protected by copyrights, so you can do what you want with it, but I've turned the idea into something new. So I took down a few words about the script, wrote down words I liked, or words that were intoned.
When taking memos from other textbooks, never copy whole paragraphs of text words for each other. Of course you can also get your own idea from other textbooks, then go crazy and create your own one. You' re not gonna rember those spark of inspiration later, I promise, so make sure you catch it somehow.
It' pretty pricey, but I like it ? Other folks use Evernote or Scrivener. Then when you think about your next projects, you can look through your list and you will find semen of suggestions that will flow into your work. After all, there are some recurrent problems that revolve around idea, so we will address them quickly here.
a) What if someone is stealing my brainchild? Thoughts are nothing. They may have an astonishing notion, but it's nothing unless you make it into a readership loveable read. There are also plenty of goodies. More and more of them are not obsessed with a certain concept, but simply carry on and more will come.
b ) What if my ideas have already been spelled out? It is true that every individual concept has been made before and nothing is really inventive. Authenticity and creativeness are created by the combination of several things into something new and by allowing one's own experiences to flow into the expressiveness of an concept, so that it becomes something new.
Nobody would say that these are the same histories, and yet it is basically about the relation between a man and a women and how they either got together and stayed happy until the end of their days or how they got together and dyed. c) How do I select which ideas I am working on?
When you have adjusted to your inquisitiveness, you will come across the "problem" of too many suggestions. Most important is to write them all down. Then you can use them in different textbooks or summarize them into several stories. Ultimately, one single concept is never enough for an entire volume.
I' ve got several hundred entries in my idea file, but I think that some of them just keep reoccur. Hopefully this has help you find new ways to pursue your own idea. What do you think of and follow your own idea? For more help with your first novel, take a look at my course, How do I compose a novel?
