With National Novel Writing Month just over a month and a half away, I thought it would be nice today to generate some ideas using magazines as inspiration.
This part of the writing process has been scary for me but I also find it fun, especially when doing something like the following exercise.
Gather as many magazines as you can. Cut out any words, images and phrases that interest you/catches your eye for any reason.
Once you’ve done that, put them all in a hat.
Pick three out. Write a story up to five hundred words using these three things as your starting point. What do they bring to mind?
What I love about this exercise is that the sky is the limit. There are so many possible ideas that could appear.
