A big publisher made
a call for submission
in a certain genre
(this is an urgent request for stories
with a specific theme).

I read in this genre
but I don’t write in it.
I passed the call along to a writing buddy.
She got so excited about the call,
she blanked out on ideas.
Hey, that happens!

I gave her one of my ideas.
I’ll never use it
as I don’t write in that genre
(I have great opportunities
in my own genres).
She tweaked it
and is happily writing.

Writers, entrepreneurs,
professionals in all creative fields,
usually have more ideas
than they can possibly use.
If you’re stuck,

The worst that can happen
is they say no.

And, of course,
pass along opportunities you can’t use.
That’s how you build world domination alliances.
