Hunting for a Story?

Walk into a convenience store, the Laundromat, or a local hangout
Stand on line at a Starbucks—
Watch a sandlot baseball game—
Speak to the person behind the counter of a deli—
Eavesdrop
You'll find stories


From the National Post The Gem of an idea

"I read something interesting in the newspaper or overhear a comment in a restaurant and I think: How can I turn that into a scene in a book? I'm always making up stories in my head, something I've been doing since I was a child playing with my cut-out dolls."—Joy Fielding
