Countdown to Play Fest

I was looking through my writing journal last night, trying to brainstorm ideas for the 10 minute play I have to write this weekend.

The journal is full of ideas for novels and screenplays and things I want to write. Some of them are more developed than others. And some things are just a couple of sentences...phrases I thought were cool or that popped into my head for no reason. Some I can't even remember where they came from.

For instance. I ran across this last night:

-He used a pig as a diversion.
-How clever is that?
-Evil genius clever!

I have no idea where that came from or why. But I think it's kinda funny. Sounds very Heinz Doofenshmirtz.

Hubs was having a panic attack last night because he didn't have any ideas for his play, but this morning he was giddy with them. Last night he wanted to pull out and this morning he was excited about what he wanted to write. I'm still trying to formulate a plan. No story ideas have clicked yet. But I'm sure something will!

Evil genius clever!

Love it! You definitely need to use it!

Ah, so you live with another artiste? How cool is that?

Sometimes I have some fun story ideas and I don't know where they come from. My hubby is used to me saying, "that'd be so fun to put in a story!"
