Inspired Writing

  Every day I’m inspired by the world around me. I’ll see the way my bathroom products are haphazardly splayed on my counters and think, This is probably how my character’s bathroom would look too. When I come across a quirky person at work or see the way the dogwood outside is flowering or the way a construction site on my drive home sounds, I’m inspired.

I think seeing the world through a creative lens is my favorite part of being a writer. I feel as though I ingest life on a daily basis, paying close attention to all its eccentricities. And as I write on a regular basis, I’m more in tune to finding those things that would add flavor to my novels. Feelings and smells and tastes are all set aside in my mental database for use at a later date.

Hope you find your inspiration too! 🙂
