Writing is tough, being a writer is tougher. Here at Alive and Writing, we take a closer look at all the challenges you will face as an author including issues with mental health, time management, professionalism, and more.
What do whiteboards, mind maps, and three chatty hosts have in common? Brainstorming! That’s right, today’s episode is about brainstorming with other people (rather than just yourself). Brainstorming is one of the most powerful tools in a writer’s toolbox and we chat about how we brainstorm, why we brainstorm, and who we should brainstorm with. We also have a snazzy little worksheet for you, Five Questions to Get Your Brain Storming (PDF).
*Due to some technical difficulties, the worksheet will be posted later this week. Thank you for understanding and check back soon!
