WRITING: More on Influence

What’s also kind of neat–although I can’t write on demand yet–is that I can take a simple scenario from reality and turn it into something that grows from there.  Purist that I’ve been, I’ve always avoided taking anything from reality –and yes, I know, all fiction, even sci-fi and fantasy is seeded in reality–and in particular, my reality, and turned it into story.  I seem to be more flexible about that with the infusion of the short form of fiction that this course has introduced for study. 

It’s okay to knowingly take a bit of real and twist it into something else completely.
