The Insecure Writer's Support Group and Upcoming Releases

It’s time for another edition of The Insecure Writer’s Support Group, founded by Ninja Captain, Alex J. Cavanaugh.

Today’s question: Has a single photo or work of art ever inspired a story? What was it and did you finish it?

I can’t think of a single image or piece of art that inspired me. 99% of my fiction writing comes from dreams. I dream a scene, I form a story around it.

However, once I have a story idea and an outline, I do rely on visuals. I have Pinterest boards for several of my books and story ideas. Those help this visual person stay with the story.

You can view my boards on Pinterest.


I have little time for writing.
