One of the things people always ask me about writing is this: "Where do you get your ideas?".
All around me.
Not everything I see or do or hear about is going to end up being a part of my writing projects. But lots of those things will trigger ideas that turn into something else.
Last summer, I became obsessed with Greg and Annie.
I don't know Greg and Annie they really are, but one of them began declaring their affections through grafitti. The graffiti was VERY noticeable, because I live in a small, scenic town with far more retirees than grafitti artists - or vandals, depending on your point of view.
I missed a few at the beginning (like the one on the railway crossing sign), but over the year that they appeared, I took pictures of quite a few of these "declarations". And in my mind, I began creating personalities for Greg and Annie. Physical descriptions. Background stories. I won't describe my own imaginings, but will share the photos here, so that you, too, might write their story in your own mind.
