Writing, I think, is not apart from living. Writing is a kind of double living. The writer experiences everything twice. Once in reality and once in that mirror which waits always before or behind. ~Catherine Drinker Bowen, Atlantic, December 1957
I found this writing blog through blogcatalog after she stopped by for a visit. If you need some inspiration today or any day you're stuck for material for characters, I recommend a visit. It's a very interesting idea for a blog.In a college level writing class years ago my professor sent us out on campus to do this and come back with a story. I would love to know what was really going on in comparison to the story I wrote. Where do you get your inspiration for characters? Today,is field trip day. Leave the sanctity of your workspace and go out preferably, somewhere new, write detailed descriptions of the characters you encounter...you might get snippets of conversations to inspire you. Enjoy your day! and then get back to work!
