When you are a writer you take parts of your life and blend in with others. When you think about your characters they are based on people you know. This is what a writer does. A writer sees an opportunity and makes it into his or her literary work and a story is born. It does not happen just like that. This is where the ideas form and the characters come to life it could be about you or someone you know. We will change the names and switch a few things but this is how we think. There are so many ideas around and become part of the idea which leads to the story. What would you write about? What genres are your favorites? Are you a crime buff? Are you a romantic? Do you like fiction or non fiction and what about history? The best part about a story is that you can be anyone you want and go anywhere you want in your mind. A perfect vacation without having to pack or fly. Where would you go? I love a good book curled up under the covers with my favorite soft drink. I can see the words come off the page and enter my brain. I can feel myself standing next to the hero or the villain. It is an honor to be a part of the story. Do you like to be a part of the story? I want to hear from you. I want to hear what you like to read. Why you like to read it. I love a great crime thriller and some romance. I enjoy fiction and an occasional auto biography about someone’s life. I want to learn about people and their lives. As always thank you for reading my blog. Now onto the next life lesson.
