Well great! I hate when this happens. Really, I
truly and honestly do because it drives me bonkers. What am I freaking out about, you wonder? Well I know it's probably not a huge deal to the world at large, but I have this interesting idea for a story to write and I have NO IDEA how to do anything with it. I mean, I do but I don't. Ugh!
Okay, a good friend of mine actually came up with this suggestion of a story to write and hinted that I should try to do something with it. I should. I totally should. I can see parts of the story in my head and can write parts of it in my mind but then when it comes down to putting my fingers on this blasted keyboard I feel like I'm lost.
Basically it's a story of three women who meet on a diaper chat site because they all have young children. They continue on to have a long distance friendship, over many years, many other children, relationships (marriages, divorces), world events, etc. They've never actually met in person, or even spoken to each other but are still somehow kismetly connected to each other.
I'm thinking the story would be told in segments, done by each woman's perspective, detailing their life so that you can get to know each one of them through their individual sections. Somewhere near the end, the woman will finally meet. Everything in the middle is a mystery to me though. I don't have any idea what to do with this. Any thoughts? Ideas? Suggestions?
Maybe I'll start playing with it, working on pieces and then see if I can somehow put it together. I don't know...
