Where do you find your inspiration to write?
Anything can inspire you to write. It does me at least.
My current WIP, I Can See You, was inspired by a dream. A nightmare of sorts that I had years ago. I had grand plans for the majority of the book being based around this event, but in the end one chapter was all it got.
One measly chapter.
It didn’t matter. The spark formed and it got me writing the story and over the course of writing the outline it developed. I like it when my plans change like that. They grow and it’s about the original spark.
I like to flick through a newspaper. Often, I find a one paragraph article that’s perfect for firing my brain. One paragraph that inspires a whole story.
For my other WIP, A Scream in the Woods, we were watching television. A character in whatever we were watching said some thing, I don’t remember what, and I had a clear idea for the book. It felt good.
A few words sowed the seed, which grew into the outline, which grew into the first draft. I’m itching to read it and start work on the second draft.
