Writing Ideas- Activities For Your Book

     Next, of course, is the brainstorm bubble.  I learned this in middle school.  It is really a great idea and there is a reason that people still use it.  It works.

     Brainstorm bubbles simply start out with a word written in the middle of a page.  This word can be a characters name, an event, a chapter, and anything else you can think of.  Once you have written that word, draw lines extending from it to anything that pops into mind when you hear that center word.  If you create a new idea off of the word extending from the center word, then make this word another center of another bubble.  Simply put, write all the words or questions you can think of and don't stop.  I have many pages of bubbles per novel.  Go crazy!
