Flooded with ideas

Whilst I'm trying to write the first draft of my novel, inspiration is attacking me from all over the place for future ideas.  Any advice on how to continue my novel but also allow these future story ideas to bloom into stories that I can write one day?


  • Have an 'Ideas' book and jot things down as they come to you?
  • Agree with TN, write them down. Once you've cleared them out of your mind you will be able to get on with the novel.

    Personally, I find that clearing the initial thoughts out allows my subconscious to work in the background.
  • Thanks, TN and Carol.  I will do.
