More testing lessons from Writers Digest

The December issue of Writer's Digest has some great articles on creativity in it. One in particular caught my attention: Blinded by the Light by Leigh Anne Jasheway-Bryant. In the article Leigh Anne provides tips for overcoming Too Many Ideas Syndrome. It's a problem many testers face. I think all nine tips can be applied to testers who have to deal with managing all the test ideas they have in their head.

Meeting of the Minds by Michael J. Vaughn and Mapping Out of a Block by Greg Korgeski are also very applicable to what we do as tester. Three great articles for that look at techniques for generating/elaborating, roughing/refining, and refocusing.

Pick up the December issue if you don't already get Writer's Digest. (And of course, what tester doesn't already get Writer's Digest?)
