I alaways have my trusty pink (I know quelle surprise not purple) notebook in my handbag as I've been known to scribble down ideas on the train, Dentist waiting room (although quite why I'd ever feel inspired in a dentist waiting room is beyond me!!), anywhere really! My notebook is like my bible, it's got everything from Chapter notes to random ideas (like the bloke with the roses) to character names.
Normally my biggest source of inspiration is music, lyrics -particularly stuff by rock groups (although Dexy's Midnight Runners did inspire a part of Love Overboard!!) So when I'm writing properly I've got a set playlist on my PC for writing too (Obv Bon Jovi features heavily on there!!)
Here's my problem today...I'm supposed to be writing a short romantic story and can I think of anything to flippin well write about? I'm jotting ideas down I've got some good tunes on (The Script) and I've come up with nothing, well that's a tiny fib, I have come up with some stuff but it all seems to cliched, I don't want to go down that route. Other sources of inspiraton come from a nice glass of wine (It's 12.30pm on a Wednesday afternoon so that's a no!!) or chocolate (I'm on a diet so that's another no!)
Hey ho, it's back to the blank piece of paper I go!! Any ideas send them on a postcard (Or leave a comment!!!)
