Tailgating off my last post on ideas becoming a premise, I took out a sheet and wrote out story title, idea, premise, and lastly research topics. This is me trying to get my concepts into some type of rotation I can complete. For example, the novel (yes, I still work on it) has aspects of dance in them, so I have some books on dancing to take notes on.
The TV show has several topics, such as; LLC, politics, religion, dysfunctional families, corporate business, and self-confidence. I need to read some articles at minimum on these, and maybe peep a book or two for some varying point of views.
Research plays an important part in stories, as it gives authenticity to the text, as well as clarifies points to help shape the story better. I am sure I can find more articles.
So now I have a to do list of work to be done. Sadly, I put this on a blank sheet of paper, and not a notebook. it’s still attached to my clipboard. May need to buy a binder soon, to make sure I hold onto papers like this.
Happy creative endeavors.
