This did happen to me.

11 Thoughts You Would Have As A Writer While Driving

So even though I do write for the Odyssey many non-fiction pieces (no duh, Maddie), I am a writer on my own terms of trying to write fictional pieces. Recently, I was just going for a drive in town when an idea for a story plot point for something I am writing came into my head so the rest of the drive to get to my destination was me having a conversation with myself about this specific plot point.

This has happened on a Tuesday as well as the due date for this article so let's hope that this is enough thoughts and things I said to myself.

1. *Idea comes to mind*

And suddenly, it was like a lightbulb went off.

2. THIS IS A GREAT IDEA!! But where would it go?

It's a major point so it needs a good place.

3. I could just use it as the ending...

Yeah that's probably the best place for this.

4. Wait...isn't that too angsty?

It's...it's literally death for this story.

5. This is literally a major plot point based off the universe I'm basing this off of.

And everyone pretty much cried in the movies at that, including me.

6. I could go with another option...

The option of "death" but it's more of fake death.

7. I'll just ask people to chose one or two.

One is fake death, two is real death for the story.

8. This is what a drive to Chipotle for dinner gets me.

A plot point idea and a burrito.

9. I got mostly one...

Okay thank you for that, people I asked. I didn't want to cry.

10. Got to love being a fiction writer.

You can write whatever (within reason) and sometimes kill off your characters and you'll want to cry about it.

11. Why is the car the place I always get my best idea?

That and the shower...

How I Went From Pro-Life To Pro-Choice

"No one can make you do this."


I was raised in a strict, Irish-Catholic family. My parents and grandparents, even though I love them, instilled many beliefs in me that I came to disagree with as I grew older, things like "homosexuality is weird and wrong." I eventually rejected many of these ideas once I began growing into myself, but there was always one belief I let ring true well into my teen years: abortion is the murder of an unborn baby.

Trip to The City of Dreams

In a city that never sleeps, with constant bustling and hustling in the streets, my friend and I venture out to see what the "Big Apple" is all about.

Trip to The City of Dreams

There are so many ways for one to describe the beautiful city of New York. It is breathtaking, exciting and alive all in one. Taking a trip here was absolutely the adventure of a lifetime for me and I'm so grateful to have gotten to see all there is to do in the "City of Dreams" with one of my best friends.

God, What's Next?

What you're probably asking yourself during your season of waiting.

God, What's Next?

We spend most of our lives waiting for something. Maybe you're waiting for a job opportunity to open up, or for a professor to email you back because you procrastinated on your assignment, or maybe you're waiting for the next chapter in your life to start. Whatever the case maybe be for you I want to let you know that your season of waiting is not in vain! It may seem like it but your season of waiting is a crucial part in your walk with Christ. You may not have a walk with Christ and I encourage you to be open to starting a relationship with him but even your time of waiting isn't in vain. Waiting is a hard thing to do but it is so worth it in the end. The Bible even tells us this in Ecclesiastes.
