Where Do Ideas Come From? (2/2)

I was asked where I get the ideas for my novels, which made me have to think about this part of the creative process. In this second installment of my two-part blog on Where Do Ideas Come From? I realized that the ideas come from just about everywhere. Most ideas come from just living my life, but some ideas come to me in unexpected ways. It can come from a conversation I overhear at a restaurant or when I’m standing in line at the post office. It can come from a quirky news story I read online or a throwaway blurb in a newspaper. It can be a story from my own life married to someone else’s story—a union of ideas. For instance, for my new book, Superstition Murder Club (available October, 2015), the idea came from my daily water aerobics class. Every weekday morning I meet with a group of ladies who are dedicated to keeping in shape, flexible and mentally alert through this activity. Although these ladies are much older than I am, they are just like me in so many ways–funny, observant, irreverent, intelligent, and wonderfully committed to a zest for life through friendship. Their dedication to this elixir of life gave me the idea of what would they do if they couldn’t do their daily exercises–say a murder occurred and a body is left in the pool, making it a crime scene and off-limits! DING! IDEA! My dirty little secret is that not every idea I have becomes a book. I have many, many half-baked ideas, half-written novels, failed opening chapters, and pages of dialog... read more

From Little Faith Comes Big Results

  When I was five, my mother gave me a necklace for my birthday. It was a round, clear acrylic ball that contained a single mustard seed suspended in its center. It hung on a thick silver chain. I wore it often throughout my childhood. When my mother gave me the necklace, she told me the parable of the mustard seed and that it meant that God would honor even the smallest faith. From that small seed, He could make a great tree grow. I loved that necklace. When I was afraid or low, I’d pop the ball in my mouth, roll it around my tongue, and dream that a giant tree of faith would grow, if I only believed. I would stare at the tiny seed in the center and marvel that something so small could become a great tree. When I was in my twenties, I lived by faith alone. It was an exciting life, and I never went without. I didn’t have “things,” but I had joy, peace, and anything that I needed. But as time went by, it got harder and harder to live that way. I put my faith in “things” and I acquired things, but I lost my joy, peace and what I really needed–a walk with God. Later, in my forties, acquiring “things” didn’t mean that much to me. Maybe because I had acquired all that I needed. Instead, I longed for joy, peace, and the love of God. Too bad it took me so long to figure out what I already knew at 20. I had no idea how to live... read more

Writing All By Yourself

Writing is a lonely occupation, but if you’re a writer there is nothing more rewarding than sitting with your own thoughts and creating something out of nothing with the power of your words. It’s just you, your thoughts, and your implement of choice for capturing your words. No one can write for you. You have to write all by yourself. You may have taken courses, gone to conferences, learned from the best, but still—when you sit down to compose your thoughts, write your story, or tap into your creativity—you are alone. When I was a reporter, I had to write while surrounded by people. The newsroom was a noisy place—people shouting, laughing, talking about what they were working on and an editor shouting at someone about something they wrote. I had to produce three stories a day, including develop the story, interview people, check my facts and race back to the newsroom to file the stories before a 5 o’clock deadline. I became very fast at writing accurately and succinctly. Even though I had people around me, I learned how to block out the noise and let go of the distractions. I focused on the composition of my words. Everything just faded away as I put the story together. Every word I put down was mine. Every fact I laid out was a fact I had obtained. I was responsible for every perception and bias that found its way into my story, and I had to answer to a relentless editor. That is probably why when I write now, I need background noise—music, television, radio or environmental sounds. On... read more
