So I’m sitting in British Literature today and I’m bored. Not that I dislike the literature, I just have issues with the teaching method. I just don’t get a lot out of the class. Anyway, I’ve been trying to come up with ideas for a fantasy story. I love the genre but it seems any time I try to write I can’t come up with anything that seems original. I’ve been so stuck.
In class, as my teacher is going on about some minutia, I have an idea. A flash, an image. Yes! It took me right to my opening scene and my main character. The mind is a funny thing. I’ve been stumped for an idea for two weeks and then, when I am busy, it comes.
That being said, I still have no idea where the story is going. I might just write the opening and see if the character “speaks to me.” I’ve heard other writers say that. I have never experienced it though. Ah well. Back to work.
