Most of my short story ideas come from just looking at people and wondering ...what if...
Sometimes I'll have a dream that seems not to make sense and that would become a novel. Because those ideas come from dreams, my novels never seem to have a end. I become too satisfied with the story in my head and the idea of sharing is somewhat daunting.
Lately I have experienced some really good writing in some movies I've viewed and I think to myself,
"Ahhhh, that person just got their dream."
Just when I am sure I know my dream is... it shifts and just like my on going novels, something in the idea falters and I have to redesign the concept.
Honestly, I am tired of redesigning. I just want the dominoes to fall as predicted.
