Novel Writing Inspiration: Photography


Many of my story ideas and elements come from photography. I store thousands of these pictures to set up a visual mood for a location, the personality of a character, or to map out a scene for blocking. I hope these photos bring some inspiration to write a new manuscript for a new year.

What are your favorite sources of inspiration?
