My Life: Humdrum but Useful

I posted last Friday at Writing Wranglers and Warriors. Attacked a question asked of many writers. To read on, click the link.

Writing Wranglers and Warriors

This post is by M. K. Waller

Where do writers get their ideas?

More to the point, where do I get my ideas?

When I blog, most of them are drawn from my life–things I’ve done, seen, heard, read about, or been told by trusted sources. It may take a while to choose one from the chaos that is my brain–my topic changed four times while I was composing this post.

But experts say, “Write what you know.”

So I do.

I’ve blogged about

a pebble changing the universe

extremism and the cat under the bed

pajamas and the Google fiber men

  2. Thanks, Patsy, for the kind words. The book is one of my un-humdrum moments. The other mystery writers will be thrilled to see the review. And “thrilled” is not an exaggeration.
