Write It Yourself

I think there is a common question that most authors are asked. “Where did you get your inspiration for your book/s from?”  There isn’t one right answer, as inspiration can spring at any time, any place, by anyone, and anything. The trick, of course, is taking that spark of inspiration and turning into something that closely resembles a book.

There are a lot of us who day dream. (Who knew all those teachers in grade school would eat their words about my daydreaming…lol) Daydreaming allows us, well me at least, to see the scene before we write it. We can stare off into space for hours. Anyway, I digress…..

Where did the inspiration for Beyond the Veil of Whispered Dreams spring from? There’s a Toni Morrison quote that I absolutely love, “If there’s a book you really want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.” Is there a particular story I’ve been waiting and waiting to be written? There WAS. I got tired of waiting (patience isn’t one of my virtues), and wrote it myself. 😉
