on Anne R Allen:
A glimmer of an idea sparks in the writer’s mind.
You’re in the shower, just waking up, cooking dinner, mopping the floor, or on the way to the supermarket, dentist, or a hot date with The One.
It’s the idea that comes out of the blue.
The crystal-clear flash of bright light when the plot, characters and setting arrive fully formed.
Rare but lovely.
