So, I think it started as a dream. I was working in a security team in my old school, but it was a new building, completely rebuild, yet it had the old layout before the refurbishment intact, still the corridors led to new rooms and stairs were there were no stairs before. Like in a dream, actually. Everything is the same, yet different, yet still the same.
Anyways. We were showing a movie in the gymnastics hall (that’s where we had our cinema, with a pull down screen) and people and kids were fluttering everywhere. We were dressed in black and looking cool and as badass as can be. When the movie was over it was my task to make sure all people left the building. I was almost the last to leave, I saw the back of my security team as they walked down the stairs towards the exit and then it happened. I saw one of my colleagues sneaking inside. Doing something dodgy.
This was a dream where I was cool, everybody liked me, even the hot guy (the one sneaking and doing dodgy stuff) I liked him. I had feelings for him. And he betrayed our security company. I wanted to bust him, confront him, ask him if he really was bad or if he was doing something undercover (remember, we were a cool security team). Unfortunately I woke up before I could find out what he was doing, so I don’t know if he’s a good guy or bad guy or something in between.
And then an idea hit me, bang on!
Stephenie Meyer started her Twilight series from a dream! (The meadow scene in the first book, correct me if I’m wrong)
There is no reason why I can’t do the same. So I’m doing it. 🙂 And the above dream is basically the backbone of the story. It’s grown limbs in every direction since, and a red thread is keeping it all stitched together. Currently the red thread is just paper thin, but as I do a little research (honestly, how many people know anything about the security business? Unless they work there, of course… my knowledge is nada, zilch, zero, a big round nothing) it’s bound to grow thicker. And the current title is… yep… Working For the Other Guy, because the main person doesn’t know if her partner does or not. She is about to find out.
Another story in my pile of stories to write. Now I only need to find time to write them all… 🙂
