I’ve heard that “where do you get you’re ideas?” is a common question for aspiring writers to ask writers that aren’t aspiring. It’s a question I don’t entirely understand, but that’s because I get my ideas regularly in the form of vicious plot bunnies.
The other question on my mind as I write this is “how are you ever going to meet a boy if you stay at home?”.
Yes, people have actually asked me this.
Now that I’ve traumatized you all and sent the male blog readers running, I’m going to answer these two lovely questions.
Simultaneously. With Frozen and Les-Mis gifs.
These things (plot bunnies and potential loves) can show up just about anywhere.
They can show up during a song.
They can show up while you’re running errands.
On the errand note, you may only see them for a few seconds. Like a ghost. One minute there and then they are gone.
Ideas are sneaky that way. Write them down, quick.
They may come back and visit.
Of course, not all of them are good. Use care.
Also, not everyone may care as much as you do about your new found idea/love.
And no idea/love is perfect.
But, if you are indeed fated to truly fall in love, you will. Don’t worry about it.
Ideas… you can make those happen. (If you’re having trouble getting ideas, look here for advice.)
UPDATE: I’d like to add that Rapunzel met her true love without leaving her tower.
