Hello! The Creative Juices Begin To Flow....At Last!
This week, I had the opportunity to indulge in something I've been desperately missing! Brainstorming! A kernel of an idea has been rattling around in my brain...amongst various other things that I'd rather have kicked to the curb. Alas! *sighs and rolls eyes* That's not the way life works...at least for us adults.
But! There's always a pearl to be gained from an irritating grain of sand. And if we choose to seek gems rather than rocks, that's what we'll find. Fellow author and dear friend, Wander, has been patiently awaiting my return to the writing table, and today I'll share a song (with accompanying video) that sparked my imagination within that aforementioned idea kernel. Character profiles...here we go! I'll be loosely collaborating with Wander as I piece together a new story - and his perspective will be invaluable as I take on a new challenge. No shy wallflower heroine in this new story! Uh-uh, no. Brazen is the word for the day. But brazen is often a mask...and every suspected villain-ess has a story which needs telling.
As I set out on a new writing adventure....take a minute to enjoy this fantastic song by Within Temptation. I love the 'gothic and otherworldly' feel to this video. It supplies some much needed inspiration for this new and wholly different storyline.
