Have You Had an Idea per Day? | #challenge #amwriting

Thursday, July 4, 2019

Happy July 4! Just in case you didn’t realize, it’s July 4 all around the world. Here in the U.S., we’re celebrating Independence Day. I’m *really* looking forward to having to keep my dog calm during the hours of neighborhood noisemaking with firecrackers and other things that go boom. (I’m kind of surprised, actually, that it hasn’t already started now that it’s 1 PM!)

But I digress . . . (Yes, it’s a holiday from work and I’m scatterbrained—which really has nothing to do with its being a holiday. Welcome to my world.)

July Challenge: One Idea per Day
On Monday, I posted my personal creativity challenge for the month of July, which is to purposely come up with and write down one fiction-related idea each day of the month. I’ll freely admit . . . I had to start by going back through decades-old files on the computer and reading a whole bunch of old, vague ideas and story starter in order to start getting the juices flowing. But it worked!

And not only do I have an idea for each day of the month so far, I woke up thinking about the idea I’m going to write about today. Again, it’s one that goes back to something I came up with a long time ago. But it’s a story idea. It’s fiction-related. And it made me wake up thinking creatively. So, even after just three days—it’s working!

Have you had an idea each day so far this month?
