In 2008 my husband and I visited Las Vegas. I’ve visited Vegas a couple of times and I always enjoy wandering the strip, people watching and gawking at the different sights. We were wandering through Caesar’s Palace and a plot bunny struck me over the head when I paused to look at a statue.
What if there were real people stuck inside that statue, I thought.
The plot remained inside my head, percolating along with all the other plot bunnies that get filed in there. Hubby will corroborate – I have a big head, so everything fits in there with no problem.
I couldn’t quite get a grip on why the people were stuck in the statue.
Then we visited Rome last year, and inspiration struck again as we wandered through the Coliseum.
My characters drove chariots.
They were “rock star” charioteers.
After that everything flowed nicely, and I ended up with a story that I called Stoned.
Meantime here’s the video I’ve made for Stoned.
