Jk Rowling apparated into the literary scene in 1997, and the world was never the same again. For the ten years that followed, millions of readers across the world allowed themselves to be swept away by the magic of Harry Potter, and as the incredible saga ended with the seventh book, a generation of readers has a decade of enchantment to cherish forever.
So what is it that made the Potter books so irresistible? Everyone has a theory; and one of them is that it's so full of possibility. It defies the confines of the mundane real world and brings to life amazing adventures only possible in dreams. While the map-reading cats and the flying broomsticks tickled the imaginations of children, the appeal of the books for the adult reader lay in its ability to revive a lost childhood, one that was, as one author puts it, 'bursting with creativity and ideas, alive with what's possible'.
As we grow up and shrug off the mantle of childhood, we leave behind that ability to spring new ideas. Blame it on busy schedules, fast-paced lifestyles and lack of practice in exercising the imagination. Why is it important, you ask? In the previous part of this series, we talked about getting unstuck, and one way to do so is to be able to explore other possibilities than the one before you, and unless you can flex those creative muscles, you won't be able to jump over your obstacles. So if you want to get moving, revv up your think-tank and get cracking on coming up with new ideas. There are three phases to this brainstorming session:
Phase 1: The Setting
Phase 2: Generating genius
Your ideas could be related to anything, from planning a party, to coming up with an ad campaign, to choosing a career. Suspend the possibility of failure and try to envision what you would be doing. Indulge in your most outrageous impulses, and jot them down. Don't be afraid to think outside the box.
Phase 3: Polish and plan
So break those barriers, and connect with your inner child, and you may be on your way to writing your own success story!
