I don’t know about you, but I come up with some ridiculous ideas between projects. Seriously wacky. Recently I’ve come across a number of lesser-known myths and urban legends from around the world and think, how I can put a spin on them? Note: other countries have much, much creepier urban legends than the Moth Man and Big Foot, which make for great horror stories.
Do you ever wonder how much is too much? Or, how crazy is this idea?
I have. All the time. I blogged about it in this post on my personal blog, but I wanted to mention it on a WIP Wednesday here because this sign stared me down in my room this morning:
I honestly forgot I had that sign. I bought it at tiny crafts festival some number of years ago, and placed it above my desk as a reminder to always trust my crazy ideas. In retrospect, the project I was working on at the time had nothing on my current WIPS, but I thought it did.
Always trust your crazy ideas. Your crazy ideas are probably original and fresh, which puts you ahead of the curve. Sometimes just the right amount of crazy in a WIP is exactly what that project needs.
So what’s the craziest idea you’ve ever had for a WIP?
