As a writer we tend to get our ideas for the stories from so many places. We watch a man and woman kiss next to the ocean. Some kids are playing baseball and one of the kids just hit a home run. Two girls are standing in a corner yelling at each other for what seems to be about a sweater.
Even watching television can spur on new ideas from something you watch. NCIS had a man stand over a dead body drenched in blood but he says he didn’t do it. Or your watching Grey’s Anatomy and a woman who refused to be check out after she had been in a multi car accident who had been being one of the most obnoxious and loud women you can imagine suddenly says, “I don’t feel so well,” and drops to the floor dead.
As a writer our brains tend to live in overdrive. We’re constantly thinking about something. We are constantly searching the world around us to see if we can find new and interesting things to say when we write.
I think that one of the things I love most about writing, I get to imagine things from my brain and then transfer them to paper. I mean, how kewl is that. It really is the best.
