    frozen moments

    are you inspired by everything? i try to be. there are nine identified sister muses, how many forms can they take? sometmes i have to drop life and take quick notes over the mundane. example:

    "She is riding in the back of the pick-up and has to brush her long, auburn, sun-loved wavy hair at every red light. Did she volunteer for this position with full knowledge of this chore?"

    do you find yourselves in a similar position?

    My entire book came out of a frozen moment.

    There is, the same thing that's wrong with all us writer types... lol

    The last short I posted on here came from one of those moments. A guy was looking into his window when I was driving by and I thought, "what if he spied his wife cheating on him?" Because I was plotting out a story of that nature and the guy I saw, looked as natural as could be I started thinking of why he would be looking in the window. Anyway, ramble moment, happens all the time... lol

    Yes, but what inspires me the most is a writer who realizes that inserting caps at the start of a sentence is a friendly gesture toward the reader..

    Sometimes I don't realize my cap lock is on--hence the lower case letter to start a sentence.
