What would you do?
On Twitter today, a message catches my eye. It was an agent saying they witnessed a 5 year old girl steal a candy bar. What would you do? Many responses mention saying something to the child or the mother there, possibly even paying for the bar after the girl left. My response...
Go home, figure out some paranormal romance aspect to bring the mother of the child and the store owner together and write it out
I know that is not the girl scout answer I would give ten to thirteen years ago. I believe my writing evolution is corrupting me to think of the world as a story. I take what I see, twist it around as needed for a plot that will fit my desire. And yes, I'm totally creating a new document file and putting the ideas that came to mind after thinking about that plot. Story Idea #15.
Am I the only one?
