So every writer finds inspiration in a number of places for their writing. I have my playlists–so music plays a part. And of course movies, TV, books, all go into the mix that provides inspiration. But I’m a very visual person, and I like to keep art around me that inspires me. I have a number of paintings in my office that I love–illustrative art, prints of paintings, sculpture…but another thing I recently decided to try was a vision bulletin board. I make treasure maps–vision boards–for myself, and for each season. But I wanted something I could change for each book, easily. And since I have a laminating machine (I love my laminator–I love shiny things), I can put together pictures, etc., that inspire me for the books.
Here’s my current bulletin board, for the Wild Hunt Series, A Sacred Magic. So tell me, what do you use for inspiration on your creative endeavors?
