Ever wonder where writers get their “stuff”?
Inspiration comes from everywhere. I love to re-charge my brain by sitting in Starbucks (notice a theme with my postings?) and listening to conversations, or hanging outside while people pass by complaining about their newest girlfriend or the day they had. The thought that this could possibly end up in someone’s book doesn’t even cross their mind. My pen to paper, I take notes.
How about family members, newspaper articles, magazine ads, the server that just plunked your meal down in front of you then huffed off to check on her next table. Maybe the teller at the bank who’s scantily dressed and every time she reaches across the counter her breasts fall out of her top. I love the one where you sit waiting in the airport for your next flight and observe all the young/and not-so-young people “texting” on their phones, but not without a grin. Ever wonder what that was all about?
I’d love to hear what other sources of information you have whether you’re a writer or not. Perhaps you’d care to share with me? Any new way of capturing story ideas would be another adventure. Inspiration is Everywhere!
So, as I always say,
