It's over hearing statements like these that make airports so much fun.
I had the pleasure of flying to Los Angeles last Friday for my best friend's bachelorette weekend. I don't know about you, but I'm a people watcher. In fact, I think a lot of artists enjoy observing people. When we write we create people with unique personalities, looks, and mannerisms, so an airport can be a treasure chest of inspiration.
- I've met other writers.
- Given people parts in my writing, although they'll never know it.
- You get to hear different dialects and speech patterns.
- I've had the opportunity to talk to complete strangers and hear their life stories.
- And it never stops astounding me how there really are no two people that look alike (except for twins). I like to observe, specifically, differences in facial structure, coloring, hair, and over all body type.
- What can be better than penning away your masterpiece on an airplane? No phone calls. No internet (although Delta is now offering WIFI on their planes for $9.95 per flight). And the only interruption you'll get is when the stewardess offers you a snack and drink.
Are there any other people-watchers out there?
