Inspiration is a funny thing. It comes from the weirdest places.
From the couple you work with who doesn’t want children.
A fact about Jupiter’s moons as you listen to the radio.
An offhand comment made by your sister.
Everything is a story waiting to happen. Or possibly a story waiting to tell itself to you.
I’m trying to learn to pay attention. I carry a notebook everywhere, ready to write things down when inspiration strikes. There is absolutely nothing worse than having a brilliant idea and nothing to take it down on, then forgetting it the moment pen and paper are in hand.
So be ready for it. Inspiration is ready for you, but if you let it by, you might miss that Big Idea you’ve been waiting for.
