Generating Ideas

What’s your favorite movie? Or your favorite piece of writing? Is there something in it that captivates your attention? Ask the characters “what if…” and see what happens. I won’t give away all my ideas, but one of the characters in the Polar Express movie popped into my head last night, and I thought about what he could be going through.

It’s something I have read about in a few writing books, but it hasn’t been until now that I have seen the validity of doing something like this. You can also do the same with a piece of artwork. Look at the painting, sculpture, or photo, and what do you see? Write about it.
Contrails above Edmonton, but you decide what they are
So I’m going to leave you with just that, a picture, and you can write what you choose about it.
