Ready Steady Go

If you test your ideas against these four criteria, a lot will be tossed out, or saved in your handy notebook for later. Don't let that upset you. There are a lot more where they came from, and some of them will pass the test with bells ringing and flags flying.

All you need is one solid story idea at a time to keep writing productively, successfully, your whole life. Use these criteria and you'll have the confidence of knowing you're starting with good material from the very beginning, material worth the thought and energy of developing, stories that have the potential of reaching readers. You'll hardly be able to wait to start working out your ideas on paper, embodying them in scenes, listening to your characters talk.

Don't wait.

Start now.
