How to Develop + Test a Story Idea (or H2DSI) is a free 5 day course that will teach you a method you can use over and over to build a stable of ideas for your stories. You'll learn how to turn the germ of an inkling into a full-fledged idea, and then test to make sure it's big and strong enough to support a whole novel.
