Where do ideas come from?


Nobody really knows. But one thing is for sure, if you read and write a lot, you can create the right conditions for ideas to germinate. Ideas are like plants they need fertile soil to root and grow--then you have to learn how to trap them before they escape.


I want you to stop right now and watch a Ted Talks video by Elizabeth Gilbert, who describes the process as clear as rain: Your Elusive Creative Genius.


Okay, I hear what you're saying..."I'm not going to stop and watch a Freakin' video?"


Now, don't be lazy.


FOR GOODNESS SAKE, this is your writing career we're talking about here.


You clicked on the link to learn how to generate ideas, right? So I'm using every resource available to show you–even enlisting the help of experts. But if you still need some convincing, here are some highlights from the TED TALK Video.


Ruth Stone the famous poet said, "When I was growing up as a little girl working in the field, I could hear and feel an idea coming over the landscape. I didn't have a pen and paper, so I had to run like hell to the house before the idea would barrel through me and keep going until it found another poet to penetrate.



Sometimes I would almost miss as it passed through me and I'd catch it by its tail and pull it backward into my body, and it would come out on the page backwards from the last word to the first."



Then there's a brief story about Tom Waits, the songwriter. He was driving down the freeway and received an idea about a melody.



He had...



No Pen.



No Paper.



No Recorder.



What was he to do?



He looked up at the sky and said, "Can you not see that I'm driving? Does it look like I can write down a song right now?



If you want me to have this idea, can you come back later at a more opportune time when I'm better prepared?" Or you can go on down the road and bother someone else."

He trusted The Source, Where All Things Come From and knew another idea would come later that would be even better.

P.S. One other thing about the Master Class. It is for serious-minded people that are on Twitter every day. It is not for the casual user. It is for those who realize the value of having a Twitter Platform and being an influencer and are okay with being held accountable for not working the program. Anyway, more on that later if you choose to take the class. Many will not. In the meantime, you can grab a copy of the book and see amazing results after implementing the six steps, or you can call me out on Twitter. Alright, that's it from here. Buy on Amazon
