The main source of inspiration comes from within you. It usually takes an outer source to bring it into a brighter light. These sources can include a loved one, a favorite photo, a poem, and even nature. Most will find that coming into contact with these sources will cause you to feel an instant surge of release.

My inspiration comes from many sources, but lately it has been a tree. Yes, a tree. It sits in my backyard and I visit it daily. Sitting on my back porch, I watch it sway and listen to it whisper in the wind. It's leaves form many patterns. I notice different aspects of it at different times. If I'm stuck on a story or just feeling out of wits, I can visit my tree and everything will seem different.

Where is your favorite place to find inspiration?

The best place I have for writing inspiration is our campsite along Mineral Springs Lake in southern Ohio. I did a lot of college homework there between enjoying the scenery and doing things with Melissa, my wife. But I can do alright in my easy chair and let my imagination run wild.

I bet the campsite is beautiful.

Best wishes,

I read like a fiend, and am inspired by the great authors I enjoy. James Reese's Book of Shadows got me back into it, 'cause I had a cannibal novella published in '01 that didn't go anywhere: one of those e-publishers before e-publishing got big, e-publish or i-publish or something. They're not even around anymore. Now I'm inspired by Leisure Horror authors, as well as King and Koontz.

Other writers are a great source for inspiration.

Right now it seems, that other peoples' writing inspires me. But sometimes shower has been a place of inspiration.
