The where and how of inspiration.....

I was thinking about a type of book that I had read recently. Still feeling a buzz from reading The Promise. (Good book, some language and scenes; definately an adult book, but excellent for world building.) When I started to play the what if game. What if.... What if.... was rolling through my head. When I started to get answers, I began to get exited, then it was, okay... if this happens then why? and so on... I sat in the nursing room at church and the book ideas began to roll forth and I wrote them down on a tiny piece of paper as my baby fell asleep. I was so exited, after missing my inspiration and creativity for so long, it has come rushing back. And I am so exited at the change. To be a writer and have no ideas was torture.....

Now armed with a whole new book to distract me from my rewrites which is good (I need to put them down for a while.) I am outlining and developing characters for an awesome book, and all I can say is YES!
