A great way to come up with ideas for your next story project is by using one of the many brainstorming techniques. Traditionally brainstorming is done with a group but the same principles can apply to an individual. Here are a list of different variations of idea generations with links to explanations on Wikipedia:
- Normal Group Technique
- Creativity techniques
- Decision Trees
- Ideas Bank
- Free Writing
- Mind Map
- Lateral Thinking
- Speed Thinking
There are other theories on idea generation and problems solving. I came across another one that I’m curious about called Questorming. I want to try out some of these techniques on my next project. Besides questorming I’ve got to try some of the mind mapping applications on the internet. I’ll let you know how it goes.
What are some of the things that you do help you generate ideas and problem solve?
