One of my favorite internet pastimes is to get on Pinterest and search for character and story inspiration. There’s something about a visual representation that just gets the blood flowing. With the Big Bad Monster of Hero, there’s plenty to look for, too. I get kind of specific with my characterization- she had fiery red hair, he wore glasses.
With my recent branch of fanfiction, I’ve found Pinterest and fanart in particular to be extremely helpful. For example, my latest fanfic was inspired by a single painting.
Inspiration comes in many forms, but pictures by far are one of the best.
Today I’m thankful for photographic inspiration. I know that’s really specific, but I’m specifically thankful for that.
