We writers know that our writing inspiration does not come in some predictable manner, such as a spring-fed stream which perpetually and inexorably flows from higher elevations to the lower. Inspiration is more like the wind, or perhaps like a wisp of vaporized sea, lingering - even faintly tastable on the tongue - yet impossible to directly grasp.
This sounds like bad news, until you consider inspiration - like the vaporized droplets of the Atlantic that make that region’s saltwater taffy dance on the tongue - is everywhere, all around you. This week on the podcast, we’ll learn how to recognize, collect, and distill this inspiration into a story that comes alive for your reader.
