Today’s our stop on Love Interrupted blog tour! A.J is talking about ideas and inspiration. You can also read an excerpt here. The giveaway is located at the bottom (good luck!).
Ideas & Inspiration
I would love to be able to say that all of my inspiration and ideas come from my own creative thought process. But then I would be lying. In truth, everything around me inspires me in some aspect. Whether it is a tree with absolutely no life left in it or a kid on the playground, running the show, I see a story unfolding in every situation. The easy thing would be to say that hearts, flowers and love inspire me. But love alone doesn’t really speak to me. For me, all the background substance truly does the talking. I’ll see a couple on a park bench not speaking to one another, and I can actually play out the events of their day in my mind. I imagine the fight before the park, and the making up after. Ideas are constantly swimming, stemming from all that inspires me. The kid on the playground stirs the idea of him having a childhood crush and it just builds from there. Ideas and inspiration are constant in everyday life for everyone. It just takes opening our eyes to actually see it. I think if you take a little bit of time to acknowledge the things that make up the world around you, you will be inspired beyond measure.
