Working on some story ideas. Told myself to come up with ten of them, which sounded simple, until I say at the laptop. I got the ideas down on file. After a little break, I’d like to do ten more story ideas. Why? Well I want several to choose from, and I like brainstorming out possibilities. Also there’s a chance something fresh may pop up. It’s the reason to keep working on ideas.
Some fresh thoughts are percolating now. Back to the files for moi.
UPDATE: I did eight more ideas, which isn’t bad at all. Later I may push for more. What I have are raw ideas, that don’t 100% fit the story world, but they are sparks that, once they cool down, can be shaped into something amazing.
UPDATE 2: I have thirty ideas for stories now, that need time to marinate. I think I have a few more ideas to put down, but I need a rest. I’m glad they were committed to a file, as opposed to staying in my head where they were perfect and there need be no action. I had to take fear off the table. For better or worse, I have ideas.
Will eventually, after they “cool off,” pick the best three to make three solid scripts from. Not that the others are going to be bad, but I need at least three full scripts in my portfolio.
