Well, this is a quick note because at the moment I'm sitting in a train waiting for the train to start going again - praying that it won't take off before I finish typing this blog or else I'll probably lose my internet connection. I'm going to be on this train until 6:30 tomorrow morning, then I have to get off just to catch another train for a couple of hours, and not to mention the 4 hour car ride after that (it's all worth it, I get to see my baby sis... YAY).
This is my first time I've caught the train over long distances (and by myself, not helping). I really wish I could turn my writer mind off. The train's not busy, and yet I've still got a very talkative and inquisitive person sitting beside me (he's gone for a walk now or else he would be reading this) and it's sparking a lot of ideas for horror stories... hey, I've spent time in the city and don't trust overly friendly people, especially people that want to know where I'm going, what I'm reading (and stating that he saw me reading it when he wasn't even on the train yet).
I just want to know whether you get a lot of ideas from little adventures that take place in real life? How much of your characters or stories are inspired by real life?
Okay, well I'm off now, going back to reading (hey, I've read over 100 pages of Michael Grant's Gone... searched high and low for it :D... 450 to go... wonder if I can finish it by the time I get home). Hope everyone's having a great day.
