So when I write I need visual and auditory inspiration. I look through iTunes and build play lists for each story and sometimes for a certain character. You know, 'What would________listen to?' I like to find pictures of random people to represent my characters and I find gardens, shops and houses that they would live in or walk by. Then I group it all in a folder for that manuscript or character and look through it while listening to my playlists. It really helps me get into the story and POV character's head. So here is a super small sampling of my inspiration photos.
* FYI--- I did not take any of these beautiful photos I swap them all from random google searches.
I hope you enjoyed a little of my inspiration pics. How do you get into your character's head?
