I wasn't going to worry about taking an of these as I have teenagers, and we don't need any more things cluttering up the house. That was until my 16 year old came with me to the supermarket! He wanted to collect them!
What has this got to do with writing? I hear you say.
You never know what is going to appeal to someone. I never expected that a bunch of mini plastic products would appeal to my 16 year old son. He has also recently discovered the books of Charles Dickens and this has got him reading again.
The story that you think is a bit 'out there' or has been done a thousand times, or it's an issue that you haven't seen others write about before - this might be the story that someone loves. You never know what story will appeal to someone.
