"How do you do it?"
That is a question my husband constantly asks me whenever I read him my stories or will talk and brainstorm with him ideas for an upcoming novel.
"How do you seamlessly create entire worlds with people and emotions?"
Usually I reply with something like "How do you create worlds online out of codes of 0's and 1's?" :-)
In truth, it flows so naturally it's kind of hard to explain. It's like planting a seed and watching it grow after being nurtured. But really everything around me is some form of inspiration: reading, music, my own love life.
I think of things like "What if.." and then I am able to create those what if's in my writing.
With all that being said, I've decided that I would like to share things around me that inspire things in my writing. It could be a song, or an outfit, or even some kind of scent.... :-) For those of you who have read Dream Lover, you know how integral the black orchid was in the story. It filled his subconscious, making him dream about it, eventually leading him to his true love.
I will be making these posts on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram so keep watch!
Until next time!
