I must say, the words flowed pretty quick, as they always seem to from me; as long as I have some direction that is. While the twist of switching the genders of the characters threw me for a moment, I found that it not only became a much more interesting story, but I was able to pull from "what I know." My boyfriend has had some super-psycho ex's in his day and oh, how the stories make my skin crawl, blood boil and have him appreciating me more and more with each passing day. I definitely like the idea of taking the norm, the every day of the week type thing and throwing a wrench into it. It can certainly help an otherwise stunted idea bank. Thank you for the exercise Mr. King, now if you don't mind- I need to finish your book.
