Tonight, I’ve been a little lazy in actual writing, but I’ve made a start now. It may have been Wednesday, but it felt like Monday. Nothing went right and it felt like I was going backwards at times. But I’m not here to whine about that.
No, I’m here to talk about inspiration. I’ve been inspired by dreams, by people and other things. Tonight I was watching tv. It’s one of my big time sucks. But today, it might actually be useful. I caught the end of a show on the National Geographic Channel about a crystal cave. I can’t find a picture of it other than the ones on the Nat Geo website and I know those are licensed, but if you google crystal caves of Mexico you’ll see how beautiful it is.
Now I’ll probably find time to watch that all the way through, because it definitely caught my interest. But you know after a moment thinking ‘ooh, that’s pretty’ my mind started whirling. Where could I use something that cool? One of my heroines needs to see something like that, be trapped.
My first thought was to have it be the lair of a dragon. Cause dragons like cool caves, but maybe not. My mind still hasn’t stopped. What if… I’ve got ideas, but I’ll have to see if they grow into plot.
Have a great day and my inspiration be your companion.
