Lockdown Blog Day 25

Friday, 17th April 2020

Whilst there might not be much inspiration from the world outside, I decided I would actively look for stimuli during lockdown (not including the internet!).

  • Feelings. We all have but, perhaps, in lockdown, they are more at the forefront of your mind.
  • Stories. Now is the time for discovering new stories. Not just novels, short stories, flash fiction, poetry, there’s a lot of storytelling going on.
  • Windows. Look out. There’s a world, one we don’t necessarily recognise, but a world nonetheless.
  • Food and drink. Explore all your senses. So often, we writers forget taste, smell, touch. We experience them daily, let’s make sure our characters experience them too.

Someone who has found inspiration to release a book is the writer Pete Draper, who features on my new Author Spotlight page.

Check out his book for free by visiting the Author Spotlight page! I gave him a free chapter edit, you could have one too – click here.
