I HOPE YOU ARE ALL DOING GREAT! IF NOT, GET READY FOR SOME INSPIRATION BY THE IDEA SERIES!
WE ARE ALL WITH YOU. REMEMBER.
SO, YOU HAVE GOT AN IDEA! WHAT NEXT?
Ideas are the outermost and most fundamental layout of the story. Next comes the 'real scenes' which is then followed by the text.
I call the next process, an 'extension' of the idea. Usually the concept is described in less than 10 words. That is not sufficient.
The concept may look something like this, 'DEEP PERCEPTION WEAPONS'
Write or type a paragraph of a hundred words describing the idea in more detail. Add its functionalities, in this case,
Define Deep perception?
How is that applied to weapons?
1. When you define, make sure YOU ARE CLEAR. You must be able to answer, what, where, when, why and how.
The idea in the form of a paragraph must form an impact. Compare to a world where that idea is not there. What is the difference you find? Would you be happy with the change? Think like the character? How would they react?
Then again change accordingly.
2. Take a weapon, a simple laser gun. Try to find elements in that gun which share a common essence with the idea. For example, you show a 'deep thought' while aiming. So you could apply your concept there, to change the aiming technique of the weapon. Just an example.
Always create multiple products which use your idea. Especially, if you are writing a novel. That makes it appear more real.
3. In case you find no common essence, create your own applied idea model and connect it to the focus object. For example, like in the story, I have my deep thoughts which come up to the surface. That is deep perception. And these deep thoughts are in turn visualized by the weapon and is simulated in real time using real objects.
4. Like how every movie follows a trailer, make sure you tell the reader that something exciting is coming up before actually executing the idea. That gives it more value.
5. If you switch between ideas, ensure that there is something at least faintly common in them. Otherwise it would be a total switch which the reader may not like.
6. Explain your idea to the reader if you know it is obscure. While the explanation could be in any form, it is essential to be detailed and clear. Stress most details to the flow of the story rather than the explanation.
If you prefer, talking to others about your idea is a very good step. But always have faith in your instincts no matter the feedback you get. You are the writer and you decide the game, ultimately.
Though we talked about story-writing in particular, a similar essence of these points work when you have thought for a start-up also. Just think on these lines.
