Brainstorm Your Way to Success
I was looking back in my Writer’s Fun Zone archives and was surprised to see I’ve never written a post on brainstorming. Free writing exercises, yes. Inspiration, yes, but never brainstorming, specifically.
Why is that? I assume, perhaps wrongly so, all writers know how to brainstorm. Deeper than that, I have mixed feelings about visual brainstorming, and don’t really care about what form your brainstorming takes, as long as it leads us to THE ANSWER.
Though I am partial to free writing, and will use the occasional mind map, all by hand, mind you.
So, I thought instead of me being the “expert” today, that I’d open up to conversation to you, dear reader, and ask:
What is your favorite brainstorming technique, and why does it work for you?
