    Plot, characters, and background are the Big Three when it comes to writing

    The trick is teaching yourself to look at everyday things this way (it doesn’t come naturally to everyone, not even to all writers). Creative brainstorming is one way of training it, and it’s the most fun if you get a group together, though you can do it alone. You can pick a topic, or you can simply open a dictionary and pick two random words, or you can just have everyone in the room write down a one-sentence character description, a one-sentence description of an object, and an action on separate pieces of paper. Mix the words or sentences or topics in a bowl and draw two or three; then set a timer for ten minutes and begin writing a list of ideas and associations and possible plots.

    Which brings me to the last point: if you are not having big fun, collaborating may not be worth the aggravation. And it will be aggravating at times—when your partner is late with their next draft, when he doesn’t have time to meet and work out that little plot problem you need to settle, when she wants you to meet at an inconvenient time, when he or she is excited and you’re feeling worn down (or vice versa). It can be fun anyway. If it isn’t, it’s OK to talk it over with your partner and agree to stop.
