Right or Wrong?

I feel a little guilty in the sense that when I'm in town, on the bus or in the shops, I look around a lot and often see people who stand out from everybody else in their appearance or behaviour. I then mentally create a character out of my assumptions about them, give then a name and a background, and then write about them. I collect them, as it were. I store them inside my head, or in a notebook, until they slot in perfectly to a story. But recently I saw a series of characters in the crowd that sparked up an entire story out of nowhere. That is the inspiration for the next short-story...
