Brainstorming

Just had lunch with Jen where we stuffed ourselves, chatted about books, publishing, and other career-related stuff.  We also brainstormed.  I can't tell you how helpful it is to bounce ideas off someone and to "think out loud".   To get a slightly different perspective than your own.  It can lead to things you might never have touched upon otherwise.  It can create a ripple affect. Whether or not you end up using the ideas that come up, these sessions always get the creative wheel spinning.   So, that being said, I'm off to write!  Good day.  :)

I agree. I have a "brainstorming buddy," and our conversations never fail to leave me with something I can use for my story.

I brainstorm with my husband. The only problem is that I end up with way more material than I can use. Of course, that's a good problem to have.

Brainstorming rocks. I like to do it on my own, or with the hubby. He helps heaps. :)
