This one comes from author Nancy Pickard:
“A few months ago, I was at my local library, thinking about a plot that would involve a young woman on a solo driving trip along back roads. As I was thinking about that, I felt an impulse to turn into the large-print section, and then to stop and pull out a book seemingly at random. On the cover there was a drawing of a young woman on a solo driving tour on a back road! I laughed to myself and took it as a signal to keep going with that book idea.
When I left the library, as I drove away, I was thinking of a certain phrase related to the same book that I was considering writing. I turned on the radio and that phrase was the first thing I heard coming out of the speaker. After I got over feeling startled, I interpreted it as another bit of synchronistic encouragement to go on working on that book idea.”
