Da Brain Power of Others
I had the distinct pleasure of having a fabulous brainstorming session with a reader friend of mine. I can’t tell you how valuable those few minutes were to my story.
She gave me a whole new outlook on what it could become– and let’s face it, when we’re talking about our stories, we get all giddy, like fan girls at a Twilight premier… (oh one can wish *sigh*)
Well– with her help- I’ve been able to see to the end of my NaNo draft and the next couple books after that- looks like a series alert folks! Of course, my Crit Partner Jamie, was essential to the brainstorming of this draft as well, and I can’t wait to have her read it :o)
On the humor tip: So this blog feeds into my facebook account– right there on the right side column there– and I tagged my mom to read my excerpt. If you missed the teaser I posted it’s Here. Well her comment was– *sorry I’m still snickering*
Mom: Why are so many children freaked out about their parents having sex??!? I don’t mind that mine did. I actually did LOL at this line: I was mortified and may never see again.
Me: It’s gross mom! Plus this character is 17, so you tell me, would she feel that way…LOL Glad you liked that line 🙂 Thanks for reading.
Mom: Actually I wasn’t worried about my parents’ sex life, I worried about mine! And you’re not 17.
And… now you know what I’ve had to deal with… gotta love her.
In honor of New Moon tomorrow- and because I’m going to go fangirl and wear my Team Edward shirt (I know- you don’t need to say it- I totally know how lame I am) *sorry boys*
Here you go!
So, do you ever brainstorm with non-writers? and how do your brainstorming sessions take place- what have you learned?
Hope everyone is having a great week. :O)
