Creativity in bits and pieces

Have you ever had one of those days when you have a character and a scene for a story in your head, but don’t know what to do with them? That’s happened to me in the last couple of days. I have started a start writing fiction course online, and this course has given me the hint of an idea for a story, but I don’t have all the pieces of the per verbal puzzle put into place as of yet.
One of the thing we have to do for this course is write a character sketch based on a video. I couldn’t see what was going on in the video, but I was able to read other people’s interpretations of what they saw, which gave me the idea for a character. Then, last night I was thinking about a book I read, where one of the characters could hear the voices in the wind of what we would call dust devils, although the author called them dust spinners in this particular series. However, in book three of the series, this character was able to ride the dust spinner that lived outside the house where she and her partner were guests. In my head, I saw my character riding on a whirlwind, but the wind would take him to a particular place, where he could see what went on, but wouldn’t be seen by others.
This idea is going round and round in my head, but I have no idea what type of story it will lead to yet. If anyone has any pointers or suggestions they would like to share, please feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments below. Happy writing, and I’ll see you fine folks ext time. Y’all come back now, ya hear?
