So last night I ate Chinese food.
I want to bed.
I had crazy wierd dreams about very cheesy pizza...
And a title came to me.
This kind of bizarre, magical title not linked to anything.
I want to write a story around this title. I want to create this character.
How wierd, right?
Sometimes phrases come to me in dreams. I'll get maybe a cool sentence and that's it. I don't dream about vampires in meadows or anything like that.
But I dreamed of this title last night. I wrote it down. And I still like it! Aw!
Where do you get ideas from? Do you write around a character? A book title? A single scene? It's always so fascinating for me how a whole story can spring up from a single seed of something.
For Leslie Lee, I had the hook first. I then created Leslie. And she drove the story. Everything else came after.
