Personally, I have yet to struggle with finding myself in short supply of tangible story ideas.
However, I do know what it’s like to wonder if the idea I’ve come up with is the best I can create and that’s where the Story Mapper Challenge comes in handy. Coming up with alternatives will either remind you how good you idea is, or provide you with a better alternative. Either way, win-win!
Using the Story Seeker Venn Diagram, let loose your creative self and you’ll be certain to find a storyline worth writing!
For this challenge, use the Story Seeker Venn Diagram to come up with no less than TEN viable concepts for a novel. Click on the link above to go download the worksheet and get started.
Challenge yourself to accompany each concept with a 2-3 paragraph description and a working title (just for fun).
Share your results online with the hashtags: #noveldomchallenge and #noveldomstorymapper so the rest of the crew and I can cheer you on!
