Do you have something in your past that helps form your stories? A fun little nugget you hope to share with your children and grandchildren one day?
Today is Fun Fact Friday and I’m going to share one fun element from my life I hope to use one day in my writing.
Here it is…
As a first job it was all kinds of awesome. I ate in the cafeteria with the soap stars, walked through the lot and into the studios where they taped “The Tonight Show” and “Days of our Lives.” I gave tours and talked about the long history of the network and the ever-evolving peacock symbol. And of course, I met some pretty cool celebrities – some of which had some very odd requests for their dressing rooms (but that’s a story for another time.)
I did the job for almost a year, but I didn’t want to be an actress or a producer, so I moved into advertising shortly thereafter. But the experience is something I’ll remember for a lifetime, and it may come in handy one day with a middle-grade story brewing in the back of my mind.
What about you? What fun fact from your life will you try to incorporate into a story one day? I’d love to hear about it.
