I've Got An Idea

In the last few weeks, I’ve had some strange encounters with random people I’ve just met on the subject of writing.

I don’t know if I’m giving off a winning writer vibe because I’m swimming in the deep end of my epic novel (it’s. . .getting. . .longer) or if I’m giving off a helpful vibe because it’s the month of May.

This is usually how the dialogue goes:

Random Person I Just Met: I’ve got this idea.

Jen: That’s nice.

RPIJM: I think it could be great. I don’t want to go too much into it.

Jen: Just write it down.

RPIJM: I’m not a writer. Maybe you could help me.

Jen: Uhmmmm.

RPIJM: We could collaborate.

Jen: Uhmmmm.

RPIJM: You know, flesh it out. You’re funny. But you’re busy.

Jen: Yeah I’m busy. You know, writing and stuff.

RPIJM: Oh. Yeah. Can I have your email? In case I want to contact you with questions.

I suppose I should be grateful that I’m not a doctor. I don’t have to deal with strange rashes.
