If you’ve just hopped over from Brenda Margriet’s blog, or are starting your hop here, welcome to a day of inspiration.
And check out an excerpt from the amazing Mountain Fire by Brenda Margriet at: http://www.brendamargriet.com/mountain-fire—excerpt.html
Today’s questions come from J.J. Devine – What inspires you? Music? Reading? Movies? People in your life? Situations in life? What gets you motivated to sit down and write?
I’ve found a new way to get inspired, and I’m really loving it.
My latest project came to me while searching for pictures on a stock photo site. I just stumbled across this picture:
Oh man, did it speak to me. A story started to bubble out that I couldn’t hold back. This picture led to others as the plot started consuming me.
Do you see a story in these pictures? I sure did. My working title is One Hot Zombiebot. I think it’s going to be fun.
Will I continue to let pictures inspire my writing? Hard to tell. I suppose it would have to be the right picture at the right time. But if this story is any indication, I’m betting on yes.
Now hop on over to A.S. Fenichel’s blog at http://asfenichel.com/blog to find out what inspires her.
And don’t forget to check out Betrayal, Book three of her amazing Demon Hunters series:
Thanks for the shout out, Steve! And I agree – those photos are very inspiring. I bet everyone sees a different story, though. Can’t wait to see yours!
It’s been really fun so far.
That’s very cool. S.C. I may try it if I ever need a boost of inspiration. 😀
It seems to be working. I went back looking for a sequel, and I think I found a picture for that as well.
Those photos sure are inspiring! I’ve never tried that before. I might have to next time I’m looking around at photos.
I forget what I was actually looking for at the time. As soon as I saw that picture, I was lost in the story.
Hmmm, might have to start trolling photo sites. That is awesome and I love the title. Good luck with it!
That picture is amazing. I can see why it inspired you. I’ve never been into zombies, but I’m intrigued by your concept.
This one’s not really what I would consider a true zombie book, but the “walking dead” concept does work. I do also have a true zombie romance on the back burner I hope to get at soon.
I’ve seen the cyborg picture too and it sure does have a story behind it. I love your working title!
Thanks Fiona. ♥
