Getting Ideas for Your Novel

I'm not sure how many of you are looking to start a new book. (If you're like me, you have more revising to do than you care to admit.) But I found two articles on getting started.

First, you need an idea. Thank you Murderati. Once again, you've hit the nail on the head.

Second, I know I've posted this before, but I've seen the advice in this article violated and I was disappointed as a reader. I think it warrants a second go-around. Show Some Character's Jason Black writes on How to Make Ordinary Characters Inspiring (and how to make extraordinary characters relatable.)
