Episode 89: Too Many Writing Ideas – How to Focus on the Story

Show Notes for Episode 89 – How to Write Fiction: With so many ideas, how do I know which ones are best?

If you’re stuck in overwhelm on a current novel or story, surrounded by the ideas coming at you from everywhere, this episode addresses just that.  When we’re writing fiction, ideas flood in.  The more you write, the more ideas you get.  So how in the world can you tell the difference between a good idea that supports your work and a bad one that derails it?

In this episode Author and Fiction Teacher Holly Lisle and I (host, Rebecca Galardo) discuss the overabundance of ideas, what to do with them, how to tell if they’re good for a current work or not, and how to maintain your focus on the current story.
