S.D. Skye's Hell or High Water 365 Day Blogathon Day 150 -- Motivation Monday

Motivation Monday - Stephen King and How He Gets Inspired

Where does your inspiration come from?

Dreams. News events. Visual observation. 
This man needs no introduction--the great Stephen King. I always get juiced listening to his videos as I prepare to write. But check this out if you haven't already. It's worth the listen; he talks about about his ideas and how they fester and grow into creepy stories.

Ideas come from everywhere and they can strike at any time. The key is to write them down.

I dreamed J.J. McCall's name about a year before I figured out who she was or that she was the main character in a spy novel--but I wrote the name down and waited for the story. Same thing with one of my dreams. I woke up and wrote it down 4 years ago...this year it will make it into a dream.
