“You can’t just dance or paint or write or sculpt. Those are just verbs. You need a tangible idea to get you going. The idea, however minuscule, is what turns the verb into a noun.” —TWYLA THARP
Think about that. As a writer, no matter how small the idea might be, we’re able to turn that into a full length book. We can get ideas from any where.
Almost eight years ago I was told I needed to add fiction elements to my daughters book. The problem was I had never written fiction nor did I have any interest in doing so. Then one morning while making my bed I had four story ideas come to me. That night I took one of them and I started to make my first attempt at writing fiction. I didn’t even know what genre I was writing in yet. All I had was an idea and began to write what was the first chapter at the time.
Since then, I have several ideas in the hopper waiting for me to write on them. It will be interesting how they all play out in the end.
