There are some things that help a writer find the right words to say or breathe to life a scene. Music is usually the first thing that people talk about. I often listen to certain styles of music when I’m writing certain pieces. The music helps me to create the world and people in my head. It also helps to create sequences. When I’m editing, I tend to listen to music that l like to sing along to. Editing is one of the most boring things a writer has to do. I tend to go cross-eyed after a while. But I don’t really want to go too far into musical inspiration.
There are some really odd things that I do that help with my creative process. First, it’s cleaning. More specifically when I’m cleaning alone. As I tackle the chores I have neglected all week, I work out a considerable amount of my dialogues. I even do accents, thus the need to be alone. My husband already thinks I’m crazy. At least my pugs won’t judge me. The other thing is the Game of Thrones game on Facebook. I don’t know why but for some reason that game gets my story juices flowing. Maybe because it’s a story driven game…shrugs.
Anyways, I would love to hear of the ways you guys find your inspiration. Comment below
