I understand that aucun is more emphatic than pas de, but does "Je n'avait pas d'idée ..." not work for this sentence as well? Thank you.
Freeform Writing Exercise B2
I don't know the context but the two negations are different in their meaning:
Je n'avais pas d'idée -- I didn't have an idea.Je n'avais aucune idée -- I had no idea.
Chris is correct!
-> meaning "any original thoughts"
I hope this is helpful.
Bonne journée !
