My best stories come to me when I'm relaxed and have time to think. I'm working on a novel (can you believe it!) and it seems that during that short period of time when I put down the book I'm reading and before I go to sleep, my mind turns to my characters. I work on plot, scenes, and dialog.
Another time stories pop into my head is in the shower. Do you think it could be that when I'm washing my hair, I'm massaging my brain? Well, maybe that's a bit far fetched, but it is a great time for me to think.
I hope everyone is thinking about a great Cougar story! I know we writers like to wait until the last minute, but I have received some excellent stories and know more will be popping up in my in-box well before the deadline.
