ON THE TRAIN

So like I mentioned in my previous post, I completed Picture Book Idea Month in November and I have at least 30 ideas. Originally, my plan was to evaluate each idea and then choose the best ones to work on. But then I decided that would involve too much thought – thinking or rather, over-thinking, is an inspiration killer for me. I end up thinking myself into a corner or off a cliff. And so, I have a new plan: I’m going to take each idea, even the obviously weak, dumb and/or bad ones, and give them a chance. My train ride into work takes about 25 minutes. This is the perfect amount of time to scribble a down-and-dirty first draft. There’s no time for me to think. There’s no time for my inner critic to harp in my ear. There’s just enough time to pull out my notebook, pull out my pen and pull out all the stops. Enough time to see where the idea takes me and whether I should keep going.
