    Krispy Kreme Muses

    So what do you think it says about your karma going into the new year if the following occurs...

    To jolt your metabolism back from the land of the living way too large, you go to the grocery on New Year's Day to stock up on the Lean Cuisines you'll be surviving on the next two weeks. When, talk about visions of damned sugar plums, the first thing you see outside the store (you can't even make it into the building, mind you) is the Krispy Kreme delivery truck?!!! Grrrr....!!!!!!!!!!!

    But despite the attack on my fragile psyche, the moment was sort of an aha for my muses The Carrie Squad. There, in that very obscene, jelly-filled, glazed moment, an idea for a story was born. A fabulous 'what if' involving a carb-challenged chick and her dream donut man.

    That's one of the things I sooooo love about writing. I can take the seemingly horrific, you've-got-to-be-kidding quirks of life and turn them into sweet, gut-busting, hotter-than-hot-out-of-the-donut-fryer, LOL adventures.

    How do you writers out there get your ideas? Who, what, where, when and/or whys and what ifs trip your creative triggers?

    Happy New Year to All of You!!!

    My what-if moments come a lot of the time while I watch the news.

    I find nothing better for ideas for a suspense or mystery than to take an interesting news story and start asking what-if.

    Another place that I get ideas from is other people's experiences. Unique or funny situations make for good writer foder.

    I also admit to eavesdropping in public and people watching for ways to spark my muse.

    Bottomline, you never know what will perk your ears up and have you mind asking what-if.
