I get some of the best ideas for writing in some of the weirdest places. Does that happen to other writers? I suppose it does, I find my mind wandering in the funniest and most relaxing places. Lately, I have been taking a steam shower and letting my mind drift away. Maybe I am stuck, though that hasn't really happened to me just yet, and then suddenly an answer comes my way.
I have been writing some chapters of my new book and a couple of them weren't really going the way I had hoped. They just weren't capturing the moment or maybe they weren't exciting enough for me. So I hop in the shower and relax. Boom, it comes to me without even thinking about it. I run out, mark it down and later I look at it and say, "Wow, this is really awesome!"
