In previous posts, I’ve discussed the art of snooping as a source of inspiration, an adjunct to help you write effective dialogue and a source for story lines.
Yesterday while browsing poetry for dVerse Open Link Night, I came across a poem by Ravenblack that illustrates the effectiveness of listening in on conversations–whether in waiting rooms, restaurants, coffee shops–any place where people go to get together and chat.
Do you have places that you like to go where conversation and ideas abound? Have you written any short stories or poems that were inspired as a result of listening to conversations in public places?
I was unable to contact Ravenblack to include her poem in this post but here is the link: http://theotherdayplace.blogspot.com/2011/10/coffee-thats-what-i-need.html
I am still unable to comment on most blogger accounts so look for my comments on your work in the comments in this post. Thanks, all.
