Have you ever wondered how writers come up with ideas for their stories? I’m sure we all have different methods, but for me locations generally inspire an idea then I let my mind wander. On a recent trip to the Oregon Gardens I took a plethora of pictures that inspired me. They were fun and whimsical and made me smile. Below are just a few.
Will I write a book based on any of these pictures? Probably not, but the feelings they evoke in me may very well inspire my next story idea. I hope you enjoy viewing the pics as much as I did experiencing them.
This statue was tucked away in one of the gardens. It’s the kind of thing that gets my creative wheels churching. Who is she, why is she there, what is she looking for? I know I sound nutty, but that’s how my imagination works. :)
I love these colors!
This appeals to the child in me. :)
Now it’s your turn. What kind of things inspire you?
