A Shower of Inspiration
The new budding idea of a story is so exciting. Then there is the moment when the missing elements come together, a plot glich is smoothed out, a new character appears to save the day or maybe a brand new element comes to life.
So many times the best ideas--the ones that have been ruminating in my busy brain--seem to get washed to the surface in the shower. Is it strange that my mind works best in the shower? Did someone enchant my water pipes or something? Maybe its just the one place a busy mom gets a minute or two to think. It happened today when I figured out a completely new direction for my latest story...I'm in outlining stage so its great timing.
Where do you all get your best ideas and plot problem solving done?
