Instead of obsessing about plot, style, spelling, or grammar, you produce text, a lot of text. I've wanted to try this before, but I've either been in the midst of a huge writing project already or some other project. The timing wasn't right, but this may be the time. Tonight's The Good Wife, reminded me of basic premise of my book.
I was inspired. I signed up.
We'll see how it goes. We'll see if I remember in just a little less than a month from now. I'll keep you posted ... if I remember to do it at all.
Wondering about the premise? I'd like to write about some innocent people who get caught up in the net of government surveillance. I decided that part of the reason that people followed Snowden rather than being outraged by what his leaks revealed is that people like a story and are bored by statistics.
Perhaps, compelling stories will make people care more. That is a story arc that I see developing in The Good Wife. I'm pleased to see it. I hope that we see a lot more.
P.S. It bugs me that I like the show despite how much the title gets on my nerves. And, it really gets on my nerves.
