- Easter eggs are brightly coloured, pretty and sparkly. So too are new story ideas.
- Eating too many Easter eggs can make you want to go lie down. Coming up with too many new story ideas can also make you want to lie down.
- Easter eggs can be gifts from loved ones, friends or the Easter Bunny. New story ideas can be gifts from your mind, the slab of cheese you just ate or the two cups of strong coffee you just drank. Sigh!
- You may find yourself boasting about the size and number of your Easter eggs. You may also find yourself boasting about the quality and number of your new story ideas.
- Easter eggs are not for sharing. New story ideas are not for sharing as some people pick holes in them or roll their eyes at you.
- Easter eggs can make you smile, so too can new story ideas.
- Some Easter Eggs can be naughty but nice. Some new story ideas can also be naughty but nice. Sigh!
- Easter eggs can make you a bit excitable and squeaky. New story ideas can make you talk very fast and look wired.
- Brightly coloured and sparkly Easter eggs can distract you from doing other things, especially if you are low on sugar, suffering from an hormonal fluctuation or in a mood with loved ones. The same applies to brightly coloured and sparkly new story ideas; they can distract you away from a 47k word draft that has not moved forward in three weeks, getting out of a huge plot hole or having to spend hours doing a painful edit.
- Sometimes you unwrap an Easter egg and discover there is something not right with it; wrong chocolate, wrong brand of chocolate or just too darn small. Sometimes you unwrap a new story idea in your mind and discover there is something not right about it; not realistic, has the potential to be a bit dull or it won’t get you past 10k words on a good day with a strong caffeine tailwind.
Happy Easter to all the readers of BlondeWriteMore!
