This story was conceived in January, during a twitter conversation. I posted ‘Suddenly, Chihuahua’ on twitter after my Chihuahua dog startled me by unexpectedly jumping up into my lap.
But now that I had a title, what would the story be about?
Obviously, it needed to be about a Chihuahua. Something unexpected had to happen. Did the Chihuahua scare someone, like mine had to me? or was the main character of this story a Chihuahua. I had just written a story were the MC was a Chihuahua (Northern Delights, which will be coming out this summer in ROAR 8), so I wanted to go a different direction here.
That got me thinking about people who interact with dogs a lot. Trainers, runners, dog walkers, mail carriers. I decided to go with a mail carrier. But then what happens to that mail carrier?
More to come in the next post, Brainstorming.
