What do you do for inspiration?
Wednesday at 8:49 pm
I love writing. I could lose a whole day absorbed in the imaginary world creating and writing. I have written four and a half books so far. Only two are published as of today; however, that will change soon with the publication of my third book called Living Red. It is a young-adult fiction about eighteen-year old Peyton as she searches for truth while struggling with the secrets her Grandma Ava is sharing with her. When she wanders into a local Art Gallery, Peyton is drawn to Dallas and to the sunsets he paints in ways that she can’t explain. Although the world is making major advances in communicating with one another and even traveling through thought as they grows closer and she discovers more about life that surprise her, she realizes that everything is not as simple as it seems.
Getting back to the idea of being inspired brings me to my fourth book. The entire first draft just flew out of me, but these second and third drafts are where I get stuck. I know that it needs revisions and edits. It is not perfect, but I want to work on my next one. The ideas are there; however, to move to the next, I need to complete the next couple of drafts of The Little Stone House on the Corner. This one is an inspirational fiction book about the power of a magical house, a little house on the corner made of simple stone where extraordinary things happened to those who lived there, so it should encourage and inspire me just by writing it! A few weeks ago, I decided to sketch the little stone house to kick my imagination into high gear. What helps you to stay engaged in your work or in your creative process?
