Throw It On The Pile
After I jot down my idea, I add it to my long list of ‘brainstorms.’ I keep several idea lists like this one in my Google Docs, Evernote or in an OpenOffice file on my computer. Later, if I find myself tapped out for ideas, I turn to my handy idea lists.
It’s fun to randomly browse through these lists and see what grabs me. Sometimes it’s an idea I don’t even remember writing, or it one that was only ‘so-so’ when I wrote it but now inspires a whole new interpretation.
