A friend asked, “Jed, where do you find your story ideas?”
My answer: “I lay on my back and stare at the ceiling a lot. The story just kind of appears, like a movie.”
“Really? What do you see on the ceiling right now?”
“Well, I see the hero, Bob. He is lost on a dark forest path. It’s a dangerous place. Bob needs help, but I think Jed and his girlfriend, Francine, might help him."
"I understand important philosophical questions are addressed in this tale?"
"Yes indeed. For instance, is the pen really mightier than the sword?..."
"A great mystery!"
"Exactly! and what causes beautiful Princess Mabel to cry so much?... and is she really wearing a royal gown beneath her long hair?...
and can goats really belch tin cans?...
and what is the most socially acceptable way to befriend a gargoyle?...
and MOST important...
Can Jed really promise Bob a happy ending, or is he offering more than he can deliver?"
