Step 2: Nonsense!

If you already know what your story is about want to get right to the details, you might want to jump ahead to the “Finding the Holes” step farther down in this path.

But If you could use some additional ideas or are stuck trying to develop the ideas you already have, the next few questions will help you find new material.

If you are really stuck, its probably because you are trying too hard to be creative – a situation often referred to as “Writer’s Block.”

Fortunately, there is a trick you can use to break through Writer’s Block and get your creativity flowing again!

The following technique will help you loosen up and come up with some really off the wall ideas that you may want to incorporate in your story. At the very least, it should give your Muse a kick in the pants. So, even if the ideas themselves aren’t useful, you’ll be inspired to begin again where you were stuck before.
