Writing Inspiration

The_Prince_and_the_pauper_dedication

 

I decided that on Tuesdays, I would share something about what has influenced me as a writer. (Of course, I’ve already missed that mark and slid into Tueswedthursday, but that’s what happens when you have a day off from work.)

Where to start? Everything influences me. Someone once asked me, “Where do you get your ideas for writing?”

The truth is . . . EVERYWHERE!

Every book I read, every news article I see, every interaction I have in the library where I work may spark an idea for me and start my brain off down some rabbit hole – scaffolding onto old knowledge, combining thoughts and ideas into something new.

It’s how I process the world.

I saw a book dedication on Pinterest recently that said it was to everyone who thought the author was writing about them. It’s much more tangential for me, I’m not usually writing memoir, and my perception of any one event or person probably would probably not be recognizable to someone else but . . . “Life is strange, and so we write.”
