    I'm on chapter six of my fiction novel, The Thief Who Wouldn't Learn.  Lucinda has stolen a bunch of stuff.  Bit o honey, pocketbooks, clothing, food, cigarettes, and other stuff.  What else could she steal?  I've thought up what happens next, but always enjoy hearing other ideas.  Of course the mn she Is going to meet will be bad too.   Searching for some more bad things to put her in.

    Thieves do seem to like cars...

          Hello, cuteness back. Read that hub, actually it was really awesome, I do not say awesome lightly, because I'm English big_smile But, you gave really good advise, there can be good and bad credit unions, too. Awareness, you even gave the big sign that that says reputable, maybe you can trust these guys. No bull here, Para, especially with what's happening at the moment, we need info like this.

          Yes.  There could be a car in there somewhere.  She is definitely going to steal the bad boys heart.  One of her future is going to have a soap making hobby.  She will of course be stealing soap.   She's going to steal a lot of lipstick from the good mother at some point because the bad daughter is going to become friends with the good daughter.

            She could also steal information, which she later uses for the purposes of blackmail. She does have a dark side, right?

              Yes, she has a dark side.  She also dreams that she is the queen. And she likes to write music lyrics.

                Wow, she's quite complex? What is her name? If you don't mind me asking?

    She could try stealing someone's idea that might actually have the potential of being successful or would bring someone else acclaim - perhaps not a la the whole controversy over the originators of Facebook or anything, but something where she would take credit for it being an innovative or great idea - even just to get back at someone and for the sake of it.  Perhaps in her job, if she has one, or at school, develops a habit of stealing other people's ideas and thoughts to go with her more material narcoleptic tendencies.  Good luck.

      Did I say narcoleptic?  Of course I meant kleptomaniac. LOL

      I was thinking in a sort of similar way:  stealing time, stealing "glory" or attention, stealing someone else's sense of accomplishment - the intangible stuff.  The story could then expand to cover deeper aspects of the person's character, like being selfish, narcissistic (thinks she won't be caught, thinks she'll outsmart others, etc.).  If she's a kid it could be about her insecurities or unhappiness.  If she's a grown-up with a mental health problem, there's yet more to include.  If she's just an evil jerk, there has to be more to her evilness than meets the eye.  Maybe there's be a lesson in it the story if she stole food or money from an elderly person or found herself at the police station for stealing something from a store.  hmm

    How about stealing other people's soul mates? That looks interesting. Or better yet steal their soul (Evil laugh!)

    She could steal someone else's best friend.
    She could steal someone's pet, (cat, dog etc).
    She could steal garden plants, (hanging baskets get stolen loads, really!)
    She could steal a book.
    She could steal a key.
    She could steal clothing from a washing line.

    Oh I could go on forever LOL.
