I've been involved with threads on the topic of original thought and I've come to the conclusion there is very little "original thought" going on in the world. Why do I ponder this? I want to write a book, I'm seeking an original topic but I don't want something that has been done before. I'm not interested in the typical romance novel, nor do I wish to mull over a topic viewed in so many angles it makes us all dizzy (think vampire-mania). So where do we go in our minds to come up with something as amazing as The Hunger Games?
I guess my dig begins by putting pen to paper, scrawling random ideas as they make their way out of my stale old mind. Perhaps with a few scattered puzzle pieces of thought will come something sounding convincingly original.
Feel free to volunteer random thoughts - I take in strays!
