If you have ever suffered from too many plot ideas you might have likened it to being in a candy store.
Here are the similarities:
- You look at all plot ideas with the same facial expression reserved for candy stores – one of excitement and wonder.
- You stick your fingers into one jar, have a lick and decide that you want to try other type of candy. You start to write out a plot idea but then ditch it after deciding to write another.
- You are always attracted to the next candy jar and you are always attracted to the plot next on your extensive list.
- You never finish a jar of candy. You never get round to finishing writing one story.
- Too much candy and too many plot ideas can make you feel sick.
- Friends envy you being surrounded by so much candy and writer friends envy you for being surrounded by so many plots ideas.
- All you want to do is settle upon one jar of candy and one plot idea – but no matter how hard you try you can’t.
- You envy friends who make a decision and stick to one type of candy. You envy writer friends who make a decision and stick to one plot idea.
Be careful out there writers!
