Lists are really handy tools for just about EVERYTHING. Whether it's to keep track of the groceries you need, a list of future goals, or in this case - brainstorming ideas! For this exercise, I am going to give you a few brainstorming list ideas. You choose one of the list types and then make your own brainstorm list. LISTS GREAT FOR PLOTS: 10 things that would be cool to happen in my plot. 10 locations I want to take scenes. 10 random ideas/elements I want to appear in my story. 10 disasters that could happen to characters. 10 ways the problem of the plot could be resolved. LISTS GREAT FOR CHARACTERS: 10 Things My character has done in their life. 10 Things my character loves/hates. 10 Places my character likes to hang out. 10 People that have affected my character's life. And if YOU have any list ideas, make sure to share them!
