When I tell people I am a writer, the question most frequently asked is "Where do you get your story ideas?" The answer is not always the same, but most often, my stories come from a place first. Yes, a setting usually sparks my ideas.
My heroine comes to the cape, but in this modern gothic, she's not an innocent, victim-like heroine in a filmy, flowing nightgown. Marika is a street smart acerbic woman who refuses to put herself in danger, or bow to her body's desires. She won't be told what to do. It's her life she's living and her rules she's living by. Things, though, have a way of twisting around. And Marika finds herself exactly where she fought so hard to avoid.
And this smart city gal soon faces secrets as dangerous as The Dory Rips themselves.
So, for those writers and budding writers out there, what entices you to want to write a story? A situation? An emotion? A quirky character, perhaps? Tell us. We'd love to hear it.
