Ok, WordPress, we are not getting along tonight. This is the second time I’m writing this post. WordPress never published the first post not did it save my post as a draft. Grr!!
At any rate, the weather inspired me with a story idea. I am a fall person (in case you haven’t noticed). As we approach Halloween, I tend to find “spookiness” in everyday things. Tonight was one of those times.
While on my way to my voice lesson this evening, I can across a low-lying section of the road. As I approached, I noticed the thick fog, which had settled across the roadway. I had the idea that a character in a story could be driving through the fog and then come out someplace else, someplace completely different.
I brainstormed with my voice teacher, and her idea was the character comes out somewhere “above” the Earth in a different dimension. The race of people “above” actually control what happens on Earth – the puppet masters so to speak. I told her since I normally write romance, the character would have to fall in love. Then they could figure out a way to travel between the dimensions and live happily ever after! LOL
On my way home from my lesson, I noticed that the fog was more widespread. Also, a low-hanging orange fingernail moon dominated the night sky. At least I didn’t have a black cat cross my path!!
