Lately, I’ve been feeling like that kid from The Sixth Sense. Instead of seeing dead people, I see story ideas. Everywhere. And in the oddest of places/situations. It would be okay if I just said, That would make a cool story and then went on about my business. Nah. I start asking questions and filling in blanks. Why this? Why that? What if…?
For instance, we rescued some stray kittens a couple years back, Tom and Jerry. They’re sisters and are like night and day. Tom is nice and stalks us (it’s not cute anymore). Jerry is standoffish and only comes around when there’s no food in their containers. They both end up pregnant by the neighbor’s cat. And then raise their kittens together. Is anyone else thinking Lifetime movie? Or soap opera storyline?
I’ll spare you the story idea I got from the love triangle between some chickens we had. So does anyone else ‘see’ stories in usual places?
