Creatively Speaking... Or Should That Be Writing?

Don't you just love those moments?

The ones where you've got several story ideas and suddenly a couple of them crash together to form one super story?

I love those moments.

I've been furiously scribbling down notes this week after such a moment happened to me.

I had one character, a character that I had had a crack at writing a story for but it just didn't seem to sit right.

And then on the other side of my brain I had a group of characters, or maybe more of a concept. I knew there was a group I wanted to write about but wasn't sure how their story would unfold.

But then the first character who was lost in their own story crashed in to the other group (in my head it was kind a like when to wrestlers propel themselves off of opposite sides of the ring into each other).

And lo and behold my character now has a story that suits them more. And I can see what the purpose of the other group of characters will be.

So know I'm writing down notes and trying to outline the story (hopefully that will be completed before the start of NaNoWriMo 2016).

I've already realised that the story and the characters are too big for one book (unless I was willing to write a 1000 pager like some authors do so I've already worked out how to split the story up in to a trilogy.

When was your last eureka moment when it came to writing?
