A few nights ago, the first line of a new picture picture book popped in my mind. I started writing.
I made it through the first page and then BAM! I realized that I didn’t have any clue as to what was going to happen next.
I was up the literary creek without a sharpened idea!
That being said, I’m doing some brainstorming as I’m working around the house. And when I am sleeping the ideas are swarming – and fresh on my mind when I awake.
It’s coming along. I’m excited and it’s fun! This is the creative part of the process and I’m thankful that the Lord gave us the gift of creativity! I still don’t even know if it is to be a picture book or if it will turn into a chapter book or something completely different. But whatever happens, I’m enjoying the journey.
What do YOU do when you have a new idea…but don’t know where it’s heading?
