Are you like me and can't resist ear wigging on other people's conversations. You know the scene: you are sipping a flat white in a cafe or riding on the top deck of a bus and you hear the most astounding or funny remarks:. 'so, I'm going to dye my hair bright green' 'you'd never believe what he keeps in that toolshed of his'
As a writer, this could set the imagination working and might spark the idea of a story.I wrote a play called THE WOMAN WHO WASHED HER KNICKERS after hearing a bizarre remark about 'flying sperm'.
My advice is to carry a notebook wherever you go and jot down these gems. You think you'll remember them, but you won't. Over time you'll collect a wealth of material that will often come in useful when you are think of what to write.
