it happens to me whenever I get close to a good idea. The good idea starts to muddle around in my brain, turning into a scramble thought!
So, what do I do when this happens?
I open up books in the same venue as I am writing, or even the newspaper (I still read a real paper)and I seek little shots of new ideas, then I think how some of these little shots of ideas would fit my characters in my story.
Does it work?
Yes, it does. Sometimes, I do not even realize that my mind is flowing again, and I can’t keep my typing up with my racing mind!
Try it, let me know if it works for you.
And believe me, I am always receptive to other writers ideas on the same subject!
