Book Ideas

When I decided to embark on the journey of writing and publishing, I had one idea for a book and it was Heart of Clay.

As I was writing it, the idea for another book keep flitting through my head, then another.

I decided I better write those ideas down before I lost them.

I created a simple file where I save all my ideas. Whenever and wherever one comes to me, I scribble down as much detail as possible. I might have a plot, a character, a generic idea, a name for a book – whatever it is, I make detailed notes and save them.

Some of the ideas I’ve already turned into books. Others are waiting in the wings to be brought to life.  A few I’ll probably never do anything with, but you never know.

People often ask me if I don’t run out of ideas.

Nope.

Never do.

My over-active imagination runs of overdrive the majority of the time, providing me with more ideas than I’ll ever be able to use.

There have been a few times I’ve had ideas and failed to write them down, thinking I’d remember them later. But for the life of me, I couldn’t remember any details.

So my sage advice for the day is to write down your brilliant ideas for a book.  Type notes on your phone, scribble on  the back of a receipt – whatever you need to do to retain those story ideas.

You’ll be glad down the road that you did.
