No more tutoring for the year, family still at school, a quiet house during the day, my kickstarter that can’t quite start yet (few tasks but nearly there). Finally the space to write.
So where are the ideas brewing.
This year is inspired by research.
When I have an idea I see if it has been done before, and if not, I begin to brainstorm it. If it has been done I see if I can put a new twist on it, and then persist with it. If not I put it in the ‘don’t bother with it pile.’
I might be inspired by some of the blogs over at Tara’s blog and see whether their ideas help me make it an even better idea.
I’ve been reading a lot of Pasifika mythology, while thinking about a lot of the world endangered creatures and creatures that might not be endangered but who I would like to know more facts about. Who knows maybe I’ll combine these ideas, but how – that will be a surprise.
I’ve been taking note of funny stories my family tell and stories from Mum that I must ask her more about, but which I have a vague recollection from as a child. Perhaps in these conversations a story idea might be born.
Now if I am sick of my computer, I think a walk might inspire an idea, so definitely heading out for one of those. The picture at the header of this post is an emu carved by a chainsaw. Hmm maybe there is an idea in that.
In Australia we have just reached day 5.
Good luck everyone with the rest of your PiBoIdMo. May you find even just one wonderful gem of idea that you feel passionate about dedicating some time to developing and polishing.
Over and out, June aka Pearlz.
