story ideas

Geez, this is fun. After dropping off Z at daycare, I spent 40 minutes with my notebook in my truck, making several edits to the story I wrote last night and brainstorming some ideas for three more stories I could work on next. I used to be frustrated that I couldn't think of any story ideas, but suddenly I'm faced with a handful of them I can start practicing with. Excellent.

Story ideas seem to come in clusters. To catch them all it can be a good idea to jot down keywords so that they don't disappear from memory when the wave of inspiration passes. :)

are these stories set in the maritimes somewhere or in an undefined generally north american sort of place?

The latter, at the moment. Place doesn't factor heavily into these plots, yet.

One of the ones I'm having the most fun with right now will take place in a senior citizens care facility. A nursing home. Heh.
