I look at writing like a game of “What if…” – You take things you see, events that have happened to you, people you know…. And you play “What if” — What if this happened instead of that? What if you change up the actual timeline of events? What if people did things/acted a different way… So on and so forth.
This morning, I came across a great article by Nat Russo of Erindor Press In the article he talks about how he comes up with story ideas. One of the ideas that caught my attention was taking something mundane and start asking yourself questions — “What If” questions and let your imagination roll.
Happy Writing…. And may the Muse be with you 😀
