Inspiration is everywhere.
Where do find most of your ideas? Internally, through personal history and your own experiences and/or purely imagined? Or externally through the things you see, hear, and touch?
The November In Print Challenge is to expand your influences. If you usually write from your imagination, sprinkle some found information in the story. If you’re mostly influenced by the world around you, dig a little deeper in your own head. If you’re soundly in the middle, using both inside and outside yourself for ideas, your challenge is to identify the inspiration and focus solely on one side, then the other. Are you surprised what you come up with when you consciously think about what’s guiding your words?
