Sleeping "in" the Job: How I Create a Story

That ain't me catching flies...


I work a lot.
I write nearly everyday.
When I'm not writing, I'm still writing.
Sort of.
Often times, people lie in bed and worry about stuff: The dwindling bank account...Paying off the student loans...Is the wife cheating on me?...My boss sucks...Looks like I'll never make it Spain in this lifetime...That sort of thing.
But when I lie in bed, or close my eyes some place else like a on transatlantic flight somewhere, I think about stories. Plots and characters and story lines. If I hit upon something that really excites me, I feel a physical twinge in my body, much like a short, sharp electric sharp (I'm not making this up). I open my eyes, feel a smile form on my lips. I've created a new novel in my head. I've written without having typed or penned a single word.
How do you write when you aren't writing?

    Vincent,
    Your books are amazing and I have almost read them all on my Kindle but must get the latest ones. You should join "You are from Cohoes if" site on Facebook it is a sure bet for more inspiration and we love famous people from Cohoes. So sorry about your Dad, perhaps you were able to write about him in one of your latest books, he was a very verbal and expressive man as you are.
