where the writers are
Writing a novel

I have finally started. I am trying to write science fiction which I have never written before. The idea came to me while driving with my kids. We were alone and it struck me how alike and how different they were from me and from each other. They were bickering in the backseat as kids are wont to do...When they are like this sometimes I intervene but many times I do not. I think that it is best for them to learn to argue and discuss problems to solve them on their own when they can. For some reason, I was able to be alone with my thoughts. I am around children so much sometimes I zone out. Maybe that's horrible to admit. But true...Anyway a great story idea came to me regarding the creation of people...We'll see how it goes.
