Yep...the problem is, I have too many ideas. I have maybe fifteen story ideas, but I keep going back and forth, trying to decide which one to work on, so I never actually publish any of it!

#110 Because when I get a crazy idea, instead of brushing it off and calling it crazy, I start thinking of opening sentences.
or i decide the writer of the book i'm reading doesn't know what they're doing and i come up with new opening sentences for that.
YES. And then I get so frustrated that I can't think of the perfect opening sentence, that I give up.
Definitely me....I know my friends think I'm weird sometimes when I say "That would be a cool story idea!"
I've not yet had a crazy idea that could be a story... but when I do, this will certainly be my reaction.
Because when I get a crazy idea, I start thinking of opening sentences. Not sure where to pin this.
If it's crazy enough for me to stop and think about it, why not everyone else? #writers #writing
And assigning a character to carry out that crazy idea.

If you've ever spent any measurable amount of time considering "cool" ways to kill people...you're probably an author.
Thankfully my friends have stopped thinking it's weird when I ask their opinions on creative ways to kill people.
...I actually spend a lot of time thinking about cool way to kill people, it's probably bad for my mental health, but eh, it's all for a good cause!
Less so ways to kill people and more so ways to make lives miserable. I'm not crazy (well that's up for debate) I'm a writer.
If you think about killing people...you are probably a writer - Mary Widdifield
Coincidentally, this is one of the ways I've thought about killing people.
My friend knows multiple ways to kill people. And he told me... oish.
Hehehe so much fun in creative writing class

I've always said a writer is the best actor, because they have to literally put themselves into the heads of multiple characters, act how they would act, and switch rapidly between characters during dialogue.
omg... I AM A WRITER!!! I thought I was the only one that did that!!!
