You Never Know
Many readers have told me that they often wonder how a writer comes up with such ideas for a novel and how in the heck we can build character personality traits with pinpoint accuracy. My response is always the same; to understand one needs to know a little about the source.
To watch a writer, published or not, go about their daily business, working, tending to family matters, running errands, you wouldn’t see anything out of the ordinary. There is no arrow above their head with red letters blinking “I’m a writer”, though I’m certain there are a few who wouldn’t mind such a display. No, outwardly they are just as normal as anyone else, except… there is one decidedly different twist that is concealed from you, the reader, until you hold the pages of their book in your hands.
What is it you ask? Well, it’s the ability to mentally multi-task. As the writer is focused on regular everyday things, they are also focused on creating new worlds and people for you to eventually enjoy and you’d be surprised to learn that it isn’t extravagant, earth-shaking situations that produce those wonderful ideas; it’s usually the simplest of things such as an encounter with a stranger who reveals a goofy quirk or an infectious laugh or perhaps watching a tender moment between two people. It is the smallest of things that the writer can take and bring to life, building places, times, cities, and most of all the beloved characters – unfolding the story so as to take you on a journey.
So remember while you are out, you may be in the presence of a writer and you’ll never know if something you do or say will end up forging a character or inspire a new world to live in.

About C. Elizabeth:
C. Elizabeth lives in St. Albert, Alberta, Canada and during her short writing career she’s learned a lot about herself, sometimes to the point that she wonders how the heck she got this far in life and know so little about herself.
For the majority of her life she dabbled in many things, such as drawing, photography, sewing, only to find that after a while, she would lose interest, but writing is a different story — it found her and continues to be an addiction, as well as a most wonderful, incredible passion.
Not only does she write novels, but she does whatever she can to hone her craft. Such as attending the New York Pitch Conference, seminars and the like, as well, she writes for online magazines on the topic of… you guessed it, writing.
