Writing Meme, Day 29

29. How often do you think about writing? Ever come across something IRL that reminds you of your story/characters?

Seriously?  What kind of question is this?  I pretty much think of writing ALL THE TIME.  When I wake up in the morning is probably the quietest my brain will be all day, and by the time I shower it’s running full speed and I’m hanging on for dear life.  I like to have a cup of coffee with my characters if I’m having a quiet morning – we sing upbeat songs in the car on the way to work if it’s a loud morning.  If I’m not too busy at work I daydream about stories (or research things I need to know for my stories).  If I am too busy at work I daydream about stories, curse a bit, and then do all my work over again because I screwed up.  I try not to do this, since I work with pretty dangerous materials.

Anytime that I’m in the car is storylining time.  I keep two packets of stickies and four pens in my purse so I can at least find one of each and write down notes while sitting at stoplights.  I try to read and/or write a little bit each night, and usually go to bed storylining again.

Real life things always inspire me – lately it’s been the wisteria, and the extreme green of the trees after a rain shower in the morning, and the wind as a storm blows through.
