Inspiration To Your Writing

Many things inspire my writing. I could be watching a movie and one line might pop out at me. From that one line, an entire story might develop in my head before the movie ends. Trust me, it will have nothing to do with the movie. I can read a book and have a scene transport me to another time and place with a different story. I have had just casual conversations happen with friends that can be inspiring. I have written short stories and then in my head seen them develop into a novel or a series. 

In other words, everything can be inspiring. But the biggest inspiration to my writing has been my daughter.
My sixteen year old daughter can come up with some of the greatest storylines. When I’m stumped, she asks me what is happening and throws out ideas. She’ll even text me with something that hit her while in class. They are great ideas, and I quickly write them down in my idea book to work on later. That is frustrating when I really want to work on them now but I have to finish the projects I have. 

I think she does such a good job because she doesn’t want to write the stories. She wants to think of things that would interest her in a book or a movie. It might be something inspired by something she is reading or watching, but she gives it such a unique twist. There is one series of books she has proposed that I think will be great. It will take me a while to research it and start writing it, but I love the idea. She is so creative.
Add that to my friends who help me through tough scenes and my writing is really a mixture of so much.

EXCERPT:


Brenna’s eyes fluttered open to see a blur of trees flying by. Her head pounded and her stomach began to roll from the pain she felt and the fast-changing scenery. A careful look at her surroundings told her she was in an older model car. She inhaled deeply to calm herself, but confusion set in as her senses were assaulted by unfamiliar smells. The old smell of the car was tainted with something repugnant and caused her nose to crinkle in response. Her eyes widened in fright as terrifying memories began to flood her mind. Turning slowly, afraid of what she might see, a gasp involuntarily escaped her vocal cords when she saw he was as repulsive as she remembered. Who was he and what did he want with her?

Sensing her stare, a pair of dark, soulless eyes turned towards her. A smile appeared on his unkempt face. “Well, well, sleeping beauty awakes.” Brenna’s stomach rolled again as she felt his eyes slide hungrily over her body. She pushed up against the door in an effort to put as much distance between the two of them as she could, but he shook his head in disapproval. “No need to be dramatic.” He turned his attention back to the road. “We both know you won’t jump out.”

She set her teeth and glared at him. Eyeballing her surroundings, she saw that there was no end to the trees that lined the road, no sign of civilization. She assumed they were still in the same state as when he grabbed her from the parking lot of the school where she taught. Deep down inside, she knew death awaited her no matter what. The look in his eye was not merciful. Yet jumping from the car to end her life seemed too selfish. As she was not one to keep such joy to herself, she quickly swung her body around and slammed into her abductor. Might as well let him in on the fun!

The force of her body colliding into his sent the car spinning out of control. She began fighting with all her might to prevent him from regaining control. Two sets of hands fought for control of the steering wheel. Profanities were shouted as the fight intensified. The car spun to the edge of the road where a small depression nestled in the forest. The tires left the ground when it hit the slight downward shift of the terrain, the car flipped and somersaulted twenty feet down the hill. As it took its final turn before slamming into a large pine tree, the passenger door flung open from the movement. Brenna thudded on the forest ground and barely missed a clump of trees. Stars exploded in her head and every bone in her body ached from the impact. She looked up to the fading light and let the darkness take possession.
