I started surfing the net. I went to all the time-sucking places. Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook, and Youtube. There is one Youtube video I saw that seriously made me laugh. Have y'all seen this one?
So. Funny. (I've been saying, "Nope, just Chuck Testa" all day. My kids are getting annoyed. Haha!)
Anyway, I thought I'd go do my daily exercise (I'm up to 2.04 miles every day now. It's amazing for me!) And while I was walking and listening to my music the most amazing thing happened . . .
The final edit came to me. My winding up scene, which I thought was pretty good, will now be amazing because my mind was clear and open and totally had room for the idea that waltzed in all innocent-like. So, here I am, with my kids challenging me to a Pokemon Puzzle League family tournament and I have to get this new final scene down. (Maybe I'll hurry and get it down, then go show those kids who's the boss at Pokemon Puzzle League. Just sayin')
So much for taking the day off.
When was the last time a story idea came to you like a bolt of lightning?
