How ideas sneak up.

No doubt most of you know about that jetliner that disappeared last year. And this week we've learned that a piece of the airplane called a flaperon floated to shore on an island in the western Indian Ocean. A flaperon is a wing component.

And something else showed up also. A suitcase.

It hit me almost immediately. A suitcase that shows up on an island, or a distant shore.  I began thinking what could it be. What would the contents show. Most likely there is a story to be found there.

The story could be tragic or it could be something else altogether, maybe falling off a ship or maybe even it has secret stuff inside. Maybe it has a million dollars inside. 

Or a camera. Where you see photos of someone or something?

What about the person who finds it, what would he or she do? Maybe there's an address inside. What if you would go to that address. 

Would you open it?

It's amazing how a story can be spun.

Have a good week-end.

btw I got a huge amount of readers on the Side By Side screenplay. I'm going to figure out how to post it over the week-end.
