The best stories starts from the oddest things at times. Today I was frantically searching for the TV remote. My brother noted that we are so used to a remote that we could walk by the TV several times and not change the channel manually. This got me thinking about our dependence on technology...and...
...its a story in the making.
The point of that little drabble is that as writers we need to be aware. Even the most mundane things (like a lost TV remote) can spark a story.
Writers have the dubious task of constantly being aware and "spying" on the world around us. It is a privilege and a skill that needs to be developed, those little nuances leaks through in your work making it much more compelling.
Well, thats my two cents for now.
