I've been participating in StoryStorm for this month. The goal is to write an idea for a picture book every day this month. Each day we have been blessed with encouragement and inspiration from successful authors. They provided us with a wealth of tips for mining ideas for stories. Finally yesterday, one author suggested only with follow through will we discover which ideas are actually worthy of being made into a book.
I've paid attention to what occurs in my daily life. A smart tip. I've listened to children. Another good tip. And I've gleaned a few ideas. Today I wanted to sit my butt in the chair. One of the more practical tips. My goal was to develop one of my ideas.
First I needed to schedule the payment of my monthly bills. Why does it take so much time to schedule paying bills? Slow internet, remembering passwords, organizing bills, all take time. Before I knew it, it was noon. I had some errands to complete so I took a break.
I think I'll be working later tonight.
