WHAT IF.......

I'm so behind on life in the blogosphere that it's shameful. Loyal readers I hope you won't jump ship. Stay with me, we're sailing somewhere (although our destination is a mystery).

Back in October on the Cynsations blog, there was a guest post written by Danielle Joseph author of Indigo Blues. She was inspired to write the book after hearing the song 'Hey There Delilah' by the Plain White Tee's. As the band became more well know it became know that there was a real Delilah and that lead singer Tom had written the song for her. Being a writer Ms. Joseph said what would have happened if Tom and Delilah had actually dated? What would be the impact of their lose of anonymity on their relationship? What if..... Well after all those what ifs Indigo Blues was born.

If been thinking about this what if game a lot lately. I've been trying to look at some of my own stories and tried to play the game. What if I changed this character into a duck? What if a character from this manuscript and that manuscript met? I've also been trying to pay more attention to things around me to look for creative places to dwell. I think this can be a helpful exercise especially when you are stuck at a dead end in your manuscript or even if you feel you have no ideas left. Play the what if game long enough and you have a completely new story. Just as an example think of something from the news lately. I'm attempting to be a runner so the first thing that comes to mind is the New York City Marathon. One of the Chilean miners was in the race. What if he has a daughter? What if she doesn't approve of her fathers new found fame? What if she is shy and doesn't like the attention. From just that bit of an idea I could write a story about a girl struggling to deal with her family's celebrity. What if she was the only one in the family that wasn't famous? I'm already intrigued. Can you come up with one? Try it, it's fun. Share what you come up with. Oh and Ms. Joseph if you'd like to send me a copy of you book I would love to read it!! Until next time!!!

I need to go to sleep so no "what if" game for me, but just wanted to say hello and no jumping ship for me! Both Nora and I have been super busy this week too and I feel badly that I won't even be able to think about posting until Saturday afternoon. Ugh. I'll have free time again someday, right?

I know, life starts to get crazier this time of year and when your life is already on super turbo charged insanity, it's almost impossible to blog. Glad we are a forgiving and loyal bunch!!!
