Apparently inspiration can come from anywhere! Even in the middle of a shower, when you're lathering up your hair. I bought Suave (rosemary and mint) shampoo based on ONE the bottle was green TWO it reminded me of summer working in the garden and THREE it smells like a herb garden. I admit this winter is making me miserable. I'm trying to think of greener days any way I can, and NO I'm not carrying around sniffing Suave shampoo to get a summer high.
So yes, I was lathering up my hair and I had a lightning strike in the noggin moment. There has been this question about a character that I have been asking myself for at least a month. I am a HAVE TO KNOW type and sometimes on the dramatic side.
I know I drove my family nutty. They would ask how my day went, and I would respond with I need to know why my character can see Grim Reapers! I know she likes to dress like a biker chick, I know why she took a spastic fit during Science, but why can she see DEATH! Just a little creepy. Thanks to Suave I KNOW, I really know. The sad part is my subconscious knew all along because I sprinkled bits and pieces throughout my MS. It was just my brain catching up with what I already knew. Sigh....
So tell me your lightning strike moment.
