At 12:30 a.m., cold and tired from a big day at our local fall fair and a birthday party, I started my next story about an old mean guy and realized it comes from an incident a very long time ago that was like a standoff between good and evil .What I wrote tonight started out as a simple account but ended up with a weird sensation of this evil feeling still heavy in the air.The piece isn’t finished and I don’t know where it is going but I’ve had enough of the creepy, old, mean son of a gun for one night. I realized that I will have to start getting used to these dark characters if I intend to spend almost a month getting them to take shape in my stories. At the fair today I ran into some folks that I used for inspiration in my first story. Coincidence………? They said hello and asked me what I was doing with my retirement time . I told them I was doing some creative stuff. One of them turned slowly to face me , and said in a slow , deliberate manner…..”……that doesn’t surprise me…..at all…….”. I bet he wondered why I had a little smirk on my face.

I think you have lots to work with, working with THAT incident…if it’s the one I think you are getting your inspiration from…it should be intense!
I hope you went to the fair in the afternoon…we went with A. in the morning and it was FREEZING!! She loved the rides, and even went on one on her own! 🙂
lots of fun and good food, but windy and cold…Bet little one thought is was a great time though!
