I daydream a lot. Call it a side effect of severe introversion, but I’ve always wondered what would happen if I began to use my daydreams for the purpose of creating a story that others could read. This could amount to something amazing, or nothing at all. But I’ve had the feeling that it’s something I need to do.
These last couple days, an idea popped into my head and subsequently two characters that are constantly having conversations. I’ve had story ideas before, but they’ve always fallen through because the places the characters were going, I couldn’t follow. But these characters now… well, to be honest, they won’t shut up. My mind continues to wander over to them and listen to what they’re saying.
So I’ve decided to write down what they say and see what happens. I’ve been learning over these last few years, that you can’t see if a risk will pan out unless you actually take it. Maybe I’ll end up with a book, or pages of nothing at all. But I’ll never find out if I don’t write anything down.
