What is a writer?
(Angela here) Love the 'random subject starting point' method @Montagfire. Thanks for sharing. And thanks for listening to our Boo.
I like the 'random subject starting point' method. I go into my library and put my hands on 3 random non fiction books then try to weave something from that. stick two or three people in the story and a conflict and off you go. Like Sailing race, australia and dogs... Architecture, horology and ghosts Roses, horses and civil war Bikes, computers and murder... or Mathmatics, cakes and hitler.... honestly it does seem work even if it is a catalyst for something else. Sometimes it is soooo weird it becomes brilliant, like, The real life story of the hunchback of Notre Dame, Statue of liberty and carpentry.. .imagine a modern twist of a classic tale of a disfigured but big hearted 'monster' that is found by a beatiful immigrant who survives a sinking boat. He is living in the basement areas of the statue of liberty and he carves little figures from driftwood with some old tools a workmman once left behind, the immigrant trafficker learns of the girls survival and the autorities have suspicions that the urban legend of the figure in the statue is a possibility after all... you get the picture It is a fun method. close your eyes and put your hand on three non fiction books..try it.
