Tuesday's Tinted Ink

How's your inspirational levels this week, beautiful guys and dolls? Inspiration strikes at the funniest times, but sometimes it's like drowning in a sea of never ending bliss. The ideas just keep rolling in, wave after wave, filling your mind with pure rapture.

Isn't it grand when that happens? I love floating in the cool waters of creativity!

Tonight, I new character for a new story I'm outlining came to me as if she were standing here beside me telling me all about herself and the reason she got in the bad situation she's in right now. So interesting! I made a new friend tonight, poor girl!

Many times, my greatest tinted ink comes from pictures. One picture can spark 1, 000 words!

For today, I've posted various picture I've found inspiring.

What about you? How do you feel when inspiration hits you like a wave on the beach shore? Tell me about it!

PS DON'T FORGET I NEED YOUR PITCH ENTRY BY THE 6TH FOR THE AGENT CONTEST THIS FRIDAY AND SATURDAY.  (see previous post)

  1. Generally, mine come from various events LOL Reading an article, watching the mustangs, something someone said or a simple, everyday action. It's a lot like a movie in my head, suddenly I have characters, a plot, places, an act that defines it all.

  2. I get my best thoughts when I'm out for a walk or hike or on the lake. For some reason the steady rhythm of my body helps my mind relax and float. For articles, I like to hang out at book stores, sip coffee and peruse magazines.

    1. That is so true true Vikki! Sometimes, it's like, Wow! Where did that come from? But I'm just glad it did!

  5. That flash of inspiration is pretty sweet. It'd be nice if characters brought some brownies or wine with them when they turn up unexpectedly, though, wouldn't it? :-)

    1. PS: I really dig the look of your blog, from the wallpaper, to the creamy couch and flower. Lovely!

    2. Thanks Mina. I love this blog background, too. I usually change it so much I can't keep up with it, but this one is a keeper. At least for a while!

  6. Stephen King said only writers can truly understand that we don't know where our ideas come from. It's in the prologue to On Writing. Excellent book that I highly recommend.

    1. Awesome book! I found it at a friend's house eight or nine years ago. It's what started me on the path to writing...

    2. That book is great! I bought it for my kindle.

  7. My best ideas tend to come to me right before I fall asleep, which sucks, because I need to clear my mind to sleep so I can function the next day, but my mind of course picks then to perk up and go into overdrive.

    1. I do that a lot, too. Last night I had to seriously get mad at my muse because I couldn't fall to sleep. I actually resorted to counting sheep...but it didn't work.
