One of the most fascinating pieces of news for me last week was the New York Public Library releasing 180,000 copyright-free material. I’ve been looking at some of it when I’ve had time, and have had the most bizarre dreams!
I have often written stories based on visual writing prompts and phrases, but this is an incredible treasure. I lost a good hour yesterday to this Egyptian collection.
Lately, I find that the visual inspires the literal in me like nothing else. I’ve become a fan of Pinterest and Instagram, because sometimes pieces of flash fiction come to me in a flash. Nostalgia can be a big source of inspiration.
What inspires you? Do you ever get lost in old pictures, albums, books?
Do you look at pictures and wonder at the stories behind them? Can you link me to interesting pictures that I could use as writing prompts?
