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.
