Have you ever been caught staring at someone? Come on, you know you have. I’m a people watcher. It’s part of being a writer. I’ve been sitting in a crowded room before and noticed someone doing something out of sync with everyone else. Of course then my overactive imagination stitches a story regarding why they’re acting different.
I’ve actually written stories based on people watching. It’s really fun to sit back and watch a couple in love. You wonder what their story is and then you piece it together with your own spin. Maybe they met by chance or have been friends for years and turned the tables. What’s really fun is you don’t know their true story, but your imagination can expand on what the eye sees. If they’re holding hands and giving those cute lovey looks, you can expand on the romance side of the story. Maybe they’re newlyweds or just newly dating. It’s up to your imagination.
I love to watch people in love. Guess that’s why I love weddings. A wedding can fill many pages of your mind. Most of the time I know the person getting married, but I’ve attended weddings where I’m not too familiar with the couple. I can sit and imagine their love story, the engagement and the romance. It’s fascinating really.
So yes, I have a problem, but it’s for a good cause 😉
As always, good writing and May God Bless You…

It happened to me just today. I was at the Woolie’s when I saw a girl with glasses, dressed shabbily and looking glum. at first glance, she looked uninteresting, completely bored with her surroundings. She looked at a kid playing and a smile lit up her face. I gaped at the transformation! And… well, I immediately thought, this is how a kind and beautiful female character could look like in one of my stories. 😀
She caught me staring though and a polite smile replace the brilliant one.
Oh yes, that could inspire many stories. When you watch people sometimes you learn things that amaze you. Interesting how it works in a writer’s mind 😉
