A chance encounter to be counted upon

How Jane Moore, The Sun columnist, indirectly inspired my writings in 2015

Thumbing though the pages of The Sun newspaper in early 2015 I came across Jane Moore’s column – wherein she had written, there are only three “stages” for female actresses to play:
district attorney,
and Driving Miss Daisy –
Whereupon, I was told, by the newsagent – while unofficially browsing – “if you’re not careful, you’ll read the print off the page” –
His remark inspired me to write the first in a fantasy collection of stories within #GirlRogues: Braggadocio, titled: “You’ll Notice Me, Cos I’m Not Dressed As A Playing Card” – telling the story of two sisters who roam the boundaries of the page, found. Though their bond reveals a hidden truth in plain sight.

Have you found writing inspiration from a chance encounter – later to be counted upon?
