Looking for inspiration

Treehouse - writing inspirationInspiration for a story often starts with the question ‘What if…?’

You hear about a situation in the news, or in a historical context, or from a friend, and think, ‘What if I were in that situation? What would I do? How would that feel?’ It’s not usually about me, but ‘someone’ – a character already magically beginning to form in my imagination – how would they react and cope?

But sometimes inspiration is much more vague than that.

It starts with an image.

The image doesn’t even have to prompt a question…it just wriggles deep into your mind and later shows up in a story.
