X is for X Marks the Spot
Shiny New Idea alert! Shiny New Idea alert!!!! A completely intoxicating new idea has worked its way into my mind and I've spent the last few days plotting.
Maybe it's because the book is about a thirteen-year-old boy, or maybe it's because it's about buried treasure, but my son was so excited about the idea that he actually sat with me for hours brainstorming.
There's not much more helpful to me than being able to bounce ideas off of someone else while brainstorming. Talking through a plot feels a little like digging up gold. With each new idea, I go a little deeper. And like real digging, it's always nice to be able to hand the shovel off to someone else.
Do you like to brainstorm out loud?
