Inspiration – this guy right here!


How do you find inspiration? Where does it come from?

When I saw this guy, right here, I stopped in my tracks. And so did he!  I grabbed the picture and tried to understand his expression. Was he as surprised as I was? And then I saw the three babies dart from the bushes.  Ahh–he was in Dad mode and needed to get his kids across the road safely!  I moved further away and watched them flee back into the woods. No time for another picture!

As I went into the house, I thought about his life –how he felt about the world. How would he protect his family? Or get them back into hiding? Would food be scarce with the winter coming?  I tried to create the feelings in my head. A lot of times, that inspires how I create a scene or emotion in one of my stories.

What inspires you?
