2) Where is it?
3) What is happening?
4) What happened just before?
5) What will happen after?That will give you some fodder for the practice range where some ideas go, an live another day, and some die.But, the real magic happens when you can take those questions, you event, your characters, and get to the heart of what is happening. Especially when you are working from sense memory; things are so much more visceral...and meaningful. What about that memory makes you hold on to it? How did the architects of your mind find it to be one of the many stones that form your castle walls?
What is your perspective on this? Have you written something that started from the modest origins of a faint memory, like the Mickey sweatshirt on an old photo?Leave a comment.
