Hello Wil, Longtime fan. What advice do you have for someone that has lots of story ideas but can't seem to get them on the page?I get all these ideas and they bounce around in my head and I work out details of character and plot, but find myself at a loss for actually sitting down and typing them out in a productive manner. Thanks!
I bought a white board, and I wrote all the ideas I had on it, one line at a time. Some of them had log lines, some had elevator pitches, others were just titles or images I wanted to use someday.
I looked at those ideas all the time, while I worked on other stuff, and let my brain decide which one it wanted to get into first.
There is nothing better than finishing one of my ideas, and then erasing it from the board. It’s such a great feeling of accomplishment, it’s supremely motivating.
