Do one thing every day that scares you – Eleanor Roosevelt
There are sometimes that I sit and stare at a blank screen as I think of what to write or form a new manuscripts outline. During this time, I go to what inspires me. The inspiration that I need will depend on the type of genre that I am writing in. For this blog post, I will be adding examples of romance and horror.
Urban Exploration has always been a fascination of mine. Near the city that I live in, there is an abandoned amusement park. These abandoned places set a near perfect ambiance for horror writing. It doesn’t take much to allow morbid thoughts to run amok.
Elders inspire my romantic literature. Most older adults that I know lived in a time when people worked hard on their marriage. Most, if not all, of my characters persevere through difficult times as the couple finds strength in each other. I don’t think I would have that outlook if it were not for my grandparents.
Those are two of my biggest influences. If you are a writer, what are yours? Let me know in the comments.
