It happens to the best of us … You go to get a drink at the Idea Fountain only to find somebody didn’t pay the water bill!
Or the fountain is running, but instead of clean, crisp water brimming with wonderful ideas, it’s a stagnant trickle filled with bug legs and slime … and only provides mediocre ideas.
So what do you do?
If the Idea Fountain has completely dried up, try using it for something else and maybe an idea will float to the surface!
For me, this is often hitting Pinterest looking for crafting idea. I RARELY complete (or even start!) a craft but just grabbing some random “supplies” and doing a Pinterest search to see what I can make with them can get me thinking in different directions.
Often, I don’t actually have to DO the alternative creative idea – I just have to relax the “word creativity” portion of my brain and let a different creativity center take over for a while.
Here’s another trick:
Speaking of making lists …
When was the last time you cracked open your copy of the Book Idea Workbook? The exercises in this mini-course are DESIGNED to jumpstart your ideas. Not only will you hone in on the perfect (exciting) idea for your book, you’ll also generate nearly-endless ideas for blog articles, opt-in gifts, videos, and courses.
Now, here’s a deal for you – this weekend, I’m putting the Book Idea Workbook on a “Retirement Sale”. Yep, that’s right, I’m going to be retiring the course. It’s going to be 50% off … but if you want instant access to the course AND a printed workbook AND a deal (30% off) then buy before April 5, 2018!
