I have found inspiration in many places. I often turn to books. I am an addictive reader, although lately I prefer to write.
Sometimes inspiration comes in the form of a little gray cat. Well, a rather large gray cat who is getting old and cranky. My boyo has dementia, and aging is turning into an adventure for both of us.
My most recent inspiration came in a box from Alaska, in the form of a pair of beautiful glass roses. These roses helped me define one small segment of my system of magic.
These roses also inspired me to redesign the maze into a much more sophisticated pattern. I am delighted with the way it turned out.
Monsoon Rain is more than a third finished by word count, although I suspect that it is nearly half finished as a first draft. There are places that need a bit of filling out. Overall, I am very pleased with it.
What inspires you?
