The Play's The Thing!

I posted this over a year ago for Lyndee. She's big into drama and I wanted to incorporate that into the caption. Whenever I hear those classic lines, I think of how it's describing a transformation, so it wasn't a huge stretch to turn it into the catalyst or mode of transformation.

One thing I try to do is make the text box less intrusive on the picture by choosing background and text colors that match something in the photo. Oftentimes, the person speaking will have his/her text color match an article of clothing they are wearing, making it easier for others to follow the 'plot'. 

Discussion question: (1) Do you take everything around you that you see and/or hear and think, "That would make a great TG caption"? Is it from more true life situations or 'flights of fancy'?


  1. I'm not sure what you mean with your question, but I hope that I have got it right.

    Many times a comment I hear or something in a discussion I'm part off gives me ideas for a story which I then try to find a fitting picture for. Also watching some TV spots are great to get ideas as they are mostly telling a short story themselves. But mostly the idea for a story just pop up when I look at pictures.

  2. You understood correctly Nadine. It was a question of "Do you take things that happen in your life and spin them into TG captions?" or "I just imagine life if TG stuff were true and then adapt it to my stories,"
