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...

The Superbowl is the biggest football event of the year, and the 50-year history of the competition has seen a lot of memorable moments. The event first began in 1967, when the first AFL-NFL World Championship Game was played in Los Angeles. Since then, the NFL has grown from a small regional competition to an international phenomenon. Over the course of the last 50 years, the Superbowl has seen some amazing plays, memorable moments and incredible records. This includes Tom Brady's record of five Superbowl titles, the first time the Patriots won three consecutive championships, and the Steelers' record of six Superbowl titles. The event has also become a cultural phenomenon, with millions of people tuning in each year to watch the big game. There are now commercials, halftime shows, and other events that make the Superbowl a true American spectacle.

11 Genres Of Music That Originated From Black Culture

Numbers don't lie, up in the charts many times, black culture has defined the music industry. Music is a worldly language that can be understood by people all over the world. You bet black culture has taken over the music industry, but not from the way you may think. I'm not talking about their prominent presence in the rap game, but the origins of eleven different genres of music. Black culture is always using their heritage and ancestral knowledge to transmute the current energy to a higher frequency. Personally, I'm not surprised that many of these music genres have originated from black culture. Thankfully, I've been able to grow up in a diverse environment. I can only thrive in a diversity of friends.
