Wisps of Writing Wisdom: Life Brings Inspiration April 11, 2012

Always stay aware of the things that can bring inspiration for a story. I once pitched an episode for an animated series – though it ultimately wasn’t considered a fit – simply by overhearing a conversation while stopping into an ice cream shop; a girl came in to apply for a job with someone else and was afraid to ask if she could apply for a job without a resume so a friend had to ask for her. Another animated episode I pitched for a series, that was accepted and produced, focused around my experiences as a teacher’s aide when in school. Recently I got a certificate for Library Technician originally hoping where I previously worked might create an archive position or department I could be a part of, and while that  didn’t happen, I used all that student experience to forge a character in the  ebook THE PHOENIX RISES and my overall library experience to create the book.

So don’t dismiss anything in your life experience, no matter how big or small. You never know what it might lead to.
