The 2022 Daily Writing Challenge – January 23

2022 Daily Writing Challenge Winter
2022 Daily Writing Challenge

They say you never know when an idea will strike you — in the shower, talking to a child, while performing a mundane task, crocheting next to a fire, or while mindlessly surfing online. My most recent inspiration hit me while searching for a topic for today’s post. Here is what I read:

On January 23, 1897, Elva Zona Heaster is found dead in Greenbrier County, West Virginia. The resulting murder trial of her husband, perhaps the only case in US history where the alleged testimony of a ghost helped secure a conviction.

Whaaaa? Lightning struck, and my over-active imagination wasted no time in conjuring an entire story inspired by these “facts.” This idea is now saved, in glorious detail, in my ever-expanding idea file.

What inspires you?

Did you write yesterday? Are you writing today?
