SITTING DOWN WITH MY MUSE...
Many readers have asked how I come up with my story ideas. How a character may have come to mind, or how a scene played out in my head vs how it turned out on the page. All these questions are wonderful and can provide little windows into an author's mind. Because of this, I always try to give a meaningful answer instead of a cookie cutter reply. Not that there always is one.
Sometimes a single word such as 'detonate' triggers a scene.
Depending where I am in a story it will spark an idea that carries me out of writing myself into a corner. Or other times I'll hear a snippet of conversation at the Café down the street and a character will come to mind. Most times, I just let my imagination play with the one never-fail question: WHAT IF? Truly, the possibilities are endless.
It also helps that my muse is a Harley riding alpha that looks sinfully sexy in a pair of leathers and not much else. Normally, I'm always ready to listen to his ideas though they do get me into some tight situations!
