A Busload of Inspiration


Well, can I say that this has been many weeks in a row now of me faithfully doing these posts. Let’s hope that they continue!

I must confess though, much of my inspiration has been coming from amusing bus stories, that or being written on the bus. This one —as you may have gathered— is no different.

On a long bus trip, a friend and I were discussing how everyone has their own seat, and what would happen if someone sat in ours. (That has happened to me a few times, on of the more memorable ones resulted in me accidentally throwing my over sized school bag onto a poor kid!)
As it was, I told my friend that I would drag them out of my seat.

She took that as a challenge.

When we got onto the next bus, she sat in my seat, a smirk on her face. She didn’t think that I would actually do anything. And under normal circumstances I probably wouldn’t.

As it was, I grabbed her by the arm and half tackled her out.

I’ve always known I’ve had a strong grip, and, well, I didn’t quite break her arm…

But it certainly didn’t look too comfortable to be her crushed arm

Well, I hope the story was amusing, but it was all true. Not fiction. And I’m Inspiring you to write fiction.

So, it’s your turn now.

Character ideas? Stories? Anything?

Feel free to share in the comments! Or if you write a best-selling novel based off this, then please tell me so I can read it!


  1. Haaaha nice. XD I can't actually connect this one to a specific character *le gasp* WHAT IS THE MEANING OF THIS?? xP But still...definitely an interesting prompt. *strokes chin thoughtfully*

    1. You, can't connect? Nuuuu! Oh well, maybe you'll end up with a character like this at some point. XD

  2. OOOOOOOOH I like this. Maybe I will include it in my WIP... thanks! XD
