Any Stargate fans out there? I was a huge SG-1 fan. So much so, I used to often dream of stepping through the gate onto alien worlds. I loved those dreams and wish I really could step through the gate.
I was having a conversation with one of my Stargate buds one day. In the One False Step episode, Jack calls Dr. Jackson, “Plant boy.”
I said, “It sounds like a super hero.” Which spawned a slew of messages about what Plant Boy’s powers would be. It was the kernel of the idea which launched Plantgirl. Granted, the story I wrote took a different bent than the conversation, but it stands to show you, you just never know where inspiration will come from.
Thanks Stargate friends! Anything like that ever inspire you?
By the way, Plantgirl is a free read available at Smashwords, B&N, iTunes, Scribd, Feedbook and now on Goodreads, too. It’s the story which won me over my first fan — a real live person I had never met before. It was a good day.
