What To Do With Your Good Idea

What To Do With Your Good Idea

A Lesson by Tracie D'Angelo

I have my great idea! Now what?


Okay, so you got your good idea. It's fabulous and you love it. It's always in your head and you can't stop thinking about it. This is where we begin to write. Write down your whole story. If you know some detail and want to add it, then that's fine. If you're not sure about a particular part, then be vague and fill in the details later. Right now you are just writing down the story line. You're figuring out the flow of the story as well as any sub-plots and especially how they tie together in the end. You don't have to write a lot. I generally write a page front and back. This is your road map and reference point to help guide you. As you begin to write your rough draft, you may notice that new situations emerge or that the main writing diverts from this base a bit. That's okay. Nothing is set in stone. This is just a general guideline.
