Hi! Carol here. Pfffft…. I really wanted to talk about my yard blanket idea, but Amy wouldn’t let me…..
It’s true. In planning this blog, we talked about swapping ideas about many things, including Carol’s “amazing” yard blanket invention (aka: a tarp). We also discussed time-saving tips, but I realized I have no time to come up with time-savers.
I thought this was a good idea too, because I was going to talk about leftovers and how much time they can save, but whatever….
Let’s spare these sweet readers from hearing about your “vegetable medley”, shall we?
I guess, since you don’t have “time” for it, I’ll refrain. Your loss. But all I will say is that there was soup involved.
This is how my kids feel about leftovers, not to mention vegetable leftovers. Let’s swap something a little more palatable. Is that a word?
Fine. Let’s swap writing ideas. I’ll share an idea I have but don’t think I can use and you share one with me. I once had an idea about this psycho girl who got invited to the prom and then got blood dumped all over head and got revenge on all her classmates.
Um, Carol? I think that’s been done. By, like, Stephen King.
Oh, right. Maybe I should just stick to romance then.
Good plan. I had an idea that’s sort of a take on the TV show Alias. Ever watch it? It had Bradley Cooper in it before he was considered a “hunk”.
Can you believe I’ve seriously never seen that show? I had no idea Bradley Cooper was in Alias.
Oh, my gosh--is he the driver?
Good guess. He’s the one who drives her here and there and helps her escape when she does something like steals the secret files from someone’s computer or assassinates a crime boss. In her everyday life, she meets this nice guy (we’ll call him Bill) and goes on a couple dates, but he is accidentally dragged into her secret life. Chaos ensues, she asks Driver to help her save her boyfriend Bill but kind of falls in love with Driver while trying to get Bill out of harm’s way. Gotta have a little love triangle action. I don’t think I decided who she ends up with, although I am rooting for Driver. I need someone who can write action and adventure to write this story for me. This is as far as this story will ever get for me.
Amy, I think this is great! I already want to know what happens next!
Feel free to take the idea and run with it. I would love to know what happens, too!
I don’t like the name Bill, though.
Me, either. Must mean I’m definitely Team Driver. Bill is totally fair game for a name change. Which leads into our fun little contest today. It's your turn, readers. Give us your ideas and the person with the story ideas that Carol and I like best will win the chance to name a character in our current WIP.
One suggestion - please don’t name the character Bill.
I agree. Although, I apologize to anyone out there named Bill, married to a Bill, fathered by a Bill, etc.
I like the name Billy.
Billy, don’t be a hero.
Billy the Kid.
Is not my lover. She’s just a girl who says that I am the one …
Okay, okay, we have to stop. Give us your ideas. Come on, swap with your Heartwarming friends! You can do it! Then, check back tomorrow. We'll announce the winner in the comments section sometime Thursday.
