If you're a plotter like me, you spend time before each creative writing project writing down story details, imagining what could be, and deciding what will be. Most of the time I do this in a simplified outline fomat. However, something I saw today made me want to try a different approach.
What if you drew your plot? Illustrated it instead of using words and bullet points. Trying new things--especially those that are radically/dramatically different from your normal routine--create new pathways in the brain and expand your creative thinking capacity.
