Recently, I contracted my fifth 1Night Stand story, and it got me thinking about where these stories come from. I’m not a plotter, so I didn’t have extensive notes about what was going to happen before I sat down to write any of these stories. Yes, I had a basic understanding of the characters, and an idea of where the story would take place, but that’s about it.
To be honest, every single story started in the shower. That is where my muse likes to flood my mind with ideas. Sometimes she shows me a brand new story, and other times what’s going to happen in a story I’m working on. And then begins the daydreaming, usually when I’m supposed to be doing something else, like making dinner. It takes a couple days for me to develop the story in my head before I start writing it, sometimes longer if I have other writing commitments.
Here are my first thoughts for each of my stories:
Celestial Seduction: A woman who can’t get pregnant. Her husband left her because of this. An alien comes down from space. Can he grant her lifelong wish?
Beneath the Starry Sky: This is Tamara’s story (from Celestial Seduction). She wears a wig to hide her Alopecia Areata, and has low self-confidence.
Unknown Futures: This story has to take place in a dance club. What if the dance club was on a space station? It’s a lesbian romance, and one of the heroines has scars on her face. The story has to include Carrie and Frey from Celestial Seduction.
Satin Sheets in Space: An 18th century ball. The woman is taller than most. She works for Josh from Beneath the Starry Sky. What about a ménage? And her dates are two hunky aliens.
Sudden Breakaway: A guy is being recruited for the Space Service (Celestial Seduction & Unknown Futures), but he can’t join as he has kids. No, not his kids, but he is their guardian. He’s a former Marine. The date takes place in Washington DC…at a hockey game.
I don’t know if any other author’s thoughts are as scattered, but this is how I think, and come up with the ideas for most of my stories. Hey, it works for me.
