What If . . .

POST CARDS FROM THE MUSE

What If . . .

We all play the game and sometimes it’s not a very healthy game, as when we can’t sleep because we’re too worried about something with a very remote chance of happening. But there are times when the What If game is good for us.

For example: You at the planetarium with your granddaughter and she asks you, “What if the stars are not just pictures on the wall and an alien walks in the room while the lights are off.” Does that sound like a story?

Or how about this—what if you’re reading a book written by a very popular horror writer and a spider crawls out from the pages? After jumping around and stepping on the little monster, can you think of something to write about?

One more. You are watching your favorite singer on television during family time and loving his show when there’s a knock on your door and there on your doorstep is the singer himself grinning as if he’s very happy to see you.

Congratulations. You have just received a post card from the muse.
