Inspiration Everywhere

One of the best things about writing a book as entrenched in nature as CHANGELING is, is that inspiration can be found literally everywhere. For example, I was looking for attractions to visit in my new city on the Atlas Obscura webpage and stumbled across this article on holloways. How cool is that? These are definitely making their way into either FIRESTARTER or REGNANT.

Another cool inspiration came when I was just browsing some articles on deMilked and came across this 2014 article about Grace Ciao, a designer who uses flower petals in her art.

That article introduced me to a new artist, Elżbieta Wodała, who also works in flowers and such.

Looks like I’m not the only one inspired to create by the world around me! Where do you get your inspiration from?

About Leigh

I like Jack Daniels, cold sushi, and short walks on the beach. My favorite color is glitter and my favorite music is punk rock. I like gamboling kittens and studying the Vietnam War, and I firmly believe the four words every girl wants to hear are, “I’m the Doctor. Run.”
