Have you ever had some stare at you intensely when you’re out and about? Well if they’re not crazy or a stalker they may very well be a writer. This is not a bad thing! When we stare and look at you our minds are racing with ideas. Here are a few potential ones.
– I wonder what would happen if my character did that?
– Would my book benefit from having someone like you in it?
– I like your eyes/cheeks/smile/hair etc I think I’ll give that to my character.
If there are any writers out there I’d love to hear what you’re thinking when you watch people and I know you do it too, it’s part of the job description!
