I’m making a list of ten ideas/things every day for 90 days to become an idea generator. This is supposed to be good practice for seeing story in everything. This is day 37.

Things I have written on index cards:

  1. The Chuck Palahniuk challenge – no thought words in my fiction for six months.
  2. A Flaubert quote – “Faire et se taire” Trans – Shut up and do it.
  3. phone messages for my employer
  4. Notes from James Gliek’s History of Time Travel
  5. Save the Cat Beat sheet lists
  6. Scenes that I have yet to write
  7. Rules of the various challenges I start each month
  8. An Alfredo sauce recipe for my son to cook tonight
  9. Ray Bradbury quotes – Don’t Think
  10. a grocery list
