Have you ever lit a match? I did. Just now. I have a mulled cider candle sitting next to my writing chair and I like it burning when I’m in my room. The little strip on my match box is wearing out and I had to strike my match three times before it slowly got a small fire and then burst into flame. 
That’s kinda like writing. Often times I’ll get a little story idea here, and another one there, then another random one a while later. On their own they aren’t much and some go into the trash folder and are never resurrected, other ideas burst into flame. 
I remember a few years back when I would go around asking my family and friends for ideas I could use in a book. At this stage in my life I have so many ideas coming at me it’s almost a fight for me to decide which ones to work on because I like so many of them. 

I don’t know if I’ll ever have another time in my life when story ideas are hard to come by, but for now I’m just enjoying the bonfire of ideas living in me. Will I ever get them all written about? Most likely not. Does that bother me? Not a bit. 

What about you? Are you a writer? Do you have an over-abundance of stories? What do you do with them?

    Oh my! YES! I have a LOT of ideas for stories and it's always a bunch of fun writing down ideas and plans; even though it may be a few years before I actually write that book.

    God bless!
