Summer of '76


The other day a person made a rather obnoxious comment that as soon as I heard it, I went to myself: “That’s what someone might have said to Carensa in the particular situation I am outlining in her story right now.”

At first opportunity, I jotted down the comment and sketched up a scenario for how that conversation could go and what it might lead to. In fact, I have a couple of places in the storyline where this comment and the following exchange may fit in perfectly.

It just shows that you never know when inspiration will strike. I’ve learned to take notes right away after it does, even if I have no idea how that fragment will fit into the big story. And serendipity is my friend. Fortunately, life is full of it, if one is open to it.
