I’m at that age where the next generation of my family is saying the “I do, forever and ever” vows. New romance is in the air for real now, not just in my fictional world anymore. And it’s kind of fun to be watching on the side lines. My sister is busy making wedding plans for her out-of-the-country daughter and soon-to-be son-in-law, as well as organizing a stag and doe party.
As I accept my “Aunt” duties and start baking for the goodie trays (I'm being very disciplined and not testing at all), I find myself wondering what morsels of my nieces experience will find their way into one of my stories in one way or another. So, I ask you, how much of life’s realities inspire scenes or story lines in your novels? Do you find yourself twisting an ordinary event into an extraordinary read? Can you guess if I do?
