Inspiration is everywhere

ITime for I on the A to Z Blogging challenge. Pressed for time so today I’m talking about inspiration for writing mostly in the form of pictures. 🙂

Some writers find it hard to come up with ideas but I’ve always found ideas everywhere. For the writing group we’ve often used pictures to inspire us to write a scene, start a story, come up with a character.

Take a look at the pictures below.  Can you write a scene based on any of them? Do any of them give you ideas about what might be going on? Who was killed in that crime scene? Whose bed is that? Some I took myself, some I found on a stock site. Feel free to brainstorm in the comments section.

CindyCarrollECindy is a member of Sisters in Crime and a graduate of Hal Croasmun’s screenwriting ProSeries. Her interviews with writers of CSI and Flashpoint appeared in The Rewrit, the Scriptscene newsletter, the screenwriting Chapter of RWA. She writes screenplays, thrillers, and paranormals, occasionally exploring an erotic twist. A background in banking and IT doesn’t allow much in the way of excitement so she turns to writing stories that are a little dark and usually have a dead body. She lives in Ontario, Canada with her husband and two cats. When she’s not writing you can usually find her painting landscapes in oil or trying space paintings with spray paint.
