I'm getting back in the groove of writing fiction, so I'm wondering about how everyone brainstorms and gets their ideas off the ground.

Right now, I have some old characters that I used to roleplay with, so I'm trying to develop them so I can know them and write their stories. I'm finding that thinking aloud on paper (asking myself what their motivations are, how they interact with other people, etc) is helping me a lot.

What about you guys? Do you use character sheets, plot outlines, etc to help develop your fiction? (Obviously there is some kind of planning, especially if you're writing a novel.) How do you get your ideas, and how do you develop them?

I'm curious. :dummy:

So it's been a while since I've posted a journal update, and SilverInkblot tagged me in her Alternate Selfies meme. Here's my take at it! :dummy:

1. Post a selfie.

long hair is longgg

2. Post a photo of your bed.

(why yes, that IS a stuffed Wicked Witch of the West there...)

3. Post a photo of your bookshelf.

(This is my Christian shelf; I have lots more than this. Lots more :stare: )

4. Post a photo of one of your more unusual possessions.

(supposed to be a beetle in a box. sister gave it to me sometime, somewhere...)

5. Post a favorite accessory you love to wear.

(As my wardrobe mainly consists of t-shirts and jeans, this is about the only accessory I wear consistently.)

6. Post a photo of something you've had since childhood.

(It's a transforming pen I got from going to a program at the library in high school. Nifty.)

7. Post a photo of your pet(s).
Untitled by doodlerTM
(As my apartment building doesn't allow animals, and my betta died last week, this is
the closest thing I have to a pet. :saddummy:

8. Post a photo of your neighborhood.

(My street after a little bit of rain.)

9. Post a photo of your closet. 
Untitled by doodlerTM
(Technically I don't have a closet; I put most of my clothes in cubbies. This is my shirt cubby.
Told you. So many t-shirts.)

10. Post a photo of your shoes. 
Untitled by doodlerTM
(Didn't realize how long my laces were. Wow.)


Well, that was fun. I'll post a regular journal later. Too lazy to tag anyone but if you want to give it a whirl go for it. :la:
