Where do these ideas come from anyway?

A shape-shifting mermaid and a bald-headed man

Book 2 of my new series is well underway. I’m just loving this world! Sure, there’s the ‘real world’ but there are also parallel worlds that I get to explore with the depths of my imagination. And I can’t help wondering…

…where on earth did I get the idea for a mermaid that transforms into a trout? How did that of all things get planted into my mind? She’s an important character in this scene, and speaks with a southern lilt. She’s a charmer, and she’s dangerous. But she’s also kind and encouraging.

As any shape-shifting mermaid-turned-trout should be, right?

What’s next? I guess I’ll find out in the following scene, which I’m going to write. Right (write) now.
