Surprise! A Better Idea Comes In

It’s not the first time I experience this, and everytime it’s like a new revelation: at some points when I’m planning a story (or rather, building its background), I come up at the weirdest moments with an idea that leaves me all excited, as well as wondering why the heck I hadn’t thought of it sooner.

Today, I was gifted with one of these. When looking at sports articles, no less. Go figure what triggers my imagination, because fitness pants aren’t exactly what I’d think of first. After this, all I could do was drive back home in haste and write the idea down before it flew away. I was lucky, it stuck, and it stuck even very well. Later on, I worked it into my story arc, replacing a certain plot that all of a sudden didn’t seem as strong as I had thought.

What’s amazing is how, this time, it unveiled an ocean of other possibilities for me, including a plan and plot for a possible “prequel novel” (I can’t call it otherwise). Not only does it strengthen the plot that goes across three volumes, but it even gives me more than that. I need to treasure this precise idea now.

And perhaps I need to go buy sports clothes more often, if they work that well in making my mind race!

    I love it when those all consuming ideas turn up. I think they are a big part of the reason I enjoy writing so much.

    It’s weird how inspiration hits. Sports clothes?! Maybe I shouldn’t be looking in the normal places for ideas, maybe I should play lawn bowls or something.

    Glad you got some inspiration. At least you have time for that instead of old friends.

    Y – You must be very busy since you haven’t been updating too often. I hope that you are mired in writing your novels and getting a lot done!

    I apologize for the last part of my statement Kery. I know you are busy, and I really am glad to see you doing well.
