A light bulb moment occurs
I believe in the importance of ideas. In fact, I almost worship ideas because that’s what keeps me going when I find that the first draft of my novel is going nowhere or I am at the brink of giving up.
Sometimes I get ideas at the spur of the moment and sometimes it germinates in my head, sometimes for years, until it finally blooms into a finished product.
For instance, in one novel that I am working on I had the idea for it since 2006. It morphed into different forms until I had the “aha” moment and decided that this was the shape it was going to take.
Ideas are really important for writers for obvious reasons. Without a good idea many of the greatest novels wouldn’t have been written. I have a bad memory so I find it really helpful to jot down my ideas into a notepad or into my mobile phone since ideas often come to me in random moments.
To end this post, I would like to ask my readers a question. How are you feeding and caring for your ideas?
