I've been like this for as long as I remember. Basically, my ideas for writing are usually really, really specific, and don't seem to grow out like I feel that they should. For example, when at the River Nile, I had an idea that a character should kill himself by throwing himself into a similar river, and somebody would etch 'an optimist died here'. There's no more content to that idea. I don't understand the characters, much less have any ideas for a plot. Has anybody else had such minute ideas and found a way to develop and evolve them?
