Shower Idea

Shower Idea

What have I been up to, writing-wise, these past few weeks? Well, the answer is many things, but first I want to tell you about my favourite place where all of my writing ideas come together, and not just ideas for writing any idea I have grows and develops when I’m in the shower. Yes, you heard right, the shower. I don’t know what it is about the shower that enables me to go through a mind portal where all thoughts of the real world are lost in endless ideas and possibilities. Maybe, it’s the relaxing effect of having a shower. It allows my mind to be free of the day-to-day thinking and opens me up to the amazing eureka moments. I have often been told off for spending ages in the bathroom, but once I step into that water world time becomes irrelevant and before I know it I’ve been in there for thirty minutes. But after thirty minutes I have either a brilliant idea or a development of an old idea. So even though I do try my best to not spend too much time lost in a new world, it has become a key part in the development of many of my stories.

So what have I been up to? Well, I’ve completed a flash fiction story called ‘My New Life’. I now need to find it a home. I’m currently rewriting my story ‘When Strangers Meet’. I’ve changed the idea of the story, giving it more of a twist. I’m also in the process of drafting a new short story, and I have decided to start planning my novel idea, which is all very exciting. I’ve now finished the ‘Fantasy and Sci-fi worlds’ course and have moved on to the ‘Creating great fictional characters’ course. For free courses, they are great and have given me a real insight into writing great fiction, which I hope I’m on the path to achieving.

Keep writing, folks!
