Hey everyone. Happy Labor Day to you and I hope it was a relaxing time. It was for me...I had to deal with living in Florida and a Hurricane that came through. Although the brunt of it missed my city, we had to deal with rain and some wind and it made for a rainy wet holiday.
Where do you get your ideas?
I get that question a lot and my answer is always the same: I have no idea. It just happens. Sometimes I play a what if...what if Logan did this or what if he had a client who did this and then see if there is a story in there to be mined.
That's what writing is. It's taking that idea and digging into it, mining the details and nuances out of it; fleshing the characters out until they come alive to you and live in that world and on the page.
It's a great feeling when you do that.
As I write this the house is quiet. My wife has been quite busy with work lately and has another long day tomorrow so she is in bed early. My son's dog is spending the night with us and she is curled up beside my wife taking up my spot in the bed. Amazing how a dog can kick 2 adults out of a queen size bed.
Stay well, be good to one another, and thanks for your support. I sincerely appreciate you all.
