#ThinkingThursday – Finding Your Inspiration


Thinking Thursday:
Finding Your Inspiration

One of the most asked questions I have is:

“Where do you find your ideas for your stories?”

My answer, quite simply, is: EVERYWHERE. And I mean everywhere. I’ve gotten ideas from

  • pictures
  • long walks
  • over-hearing a snippet of a conversation
  • a tree
  • a cow mooing
  • a song
  • writing challenges
  • writing prompt
  • magazines

… and the list can keep going on.  😀

Here is one of my favorite quotes:

card-orson-scott-athousandstoryideasThe trick is to keep your eyes, ears, and nose open. Yes, use your senses. Allow your mind to wander. The possibilities will begin to open up for you. Once you train your mind and body to notice these thing, you’ll find inspiration all around.

Until next time…
