Program Description
In this interactive presentation, I will introduce students to one of the most important tools in a writer's tool box - the ability to find a fresh slant or angle to even the most boring topic. We will discuss where ideas come from, and what to do when confronted with that dreaded assignment.  Together we will brainstorm a number of topics with my simple technique to create dozens of unique writing opportunities. 
Program Format
1. After a brief introduction to my books, I will discuss where ideas come from, and the importance of developing an idea into a workable writing project.

2. We will discuss what happens when writers are assigned a topic, and I will demonstrate my brainstorming technique that helps me discover new ways to approach an tired subject.

3. I will lead the class in brainstorming their own ideas.

4. Q and A
Objectives
Participants will learn how writers get their ideas.
