When I interview guests for my other blog, Romance Writers on the Journey, one question I often ask is what led them to write their first story. It's interesting hearing what or whom served as inspiration.
I just returned from a walk with my husband. As we strolled along historical Highway 49 in our Gold Rush era town, I reflected on what infuses me with new ideas and a desire to spend time with my characters.
Here are my top five sources of inspiration:
3) Plotting with my Hubby
4) Listening to Classical Music
5) Reading My Story
This afternoon I was so inspired by the walk I took with my hubby/plotting partner though our historic town that I'm having a hard time forcing myself to tend to paperwork and other projects I'd put off. I'm motivated to get the must-do items done as quickly as possible so I can immerse myself in my imaginary world and commune with my characters.
What serves to inspire you and creates a desire to write?
