There I was taking a shower when I was suddenly struck with an idea for a book. I will tell you now that the two are completely independent of one another and the idea in no way involves showers or anything down that road. Big disappointment, I'm sure. Wipe that smirk off your face.
Now that I think on it, the idea might have sprung from the bits and pieces of the Bio section that I've been discussing with a friend. I know I had a similar idea a few weeks ago, but I didn't have any way to write it down at the time and now it's gone. I've still managed to retain what began that lost idea, however.
Stephen King says that he gets his ideas from taking two mostly unrelated ideas and smashing them together (and then one can only assume he sprinkles paranormal stuff in there for good measure). He then asks that predicament or situation the question: What If? Instead, I like the concept: Careful What You Wish For. It's more of an addendum to his question, I guess.
What if that were a real thing? Careful what you wish for.
There are always people running around with ideas that they think are fabulous and wonderful and these people are always asking others to agree. Everyone has met at least one person like this. "The government should do this!" and "Someone should invent something that does that!" and "Such-and-such should be illegal!" Okay, what if? Maybe next time you'll be careful what you wish for.
