I get inspiration in the strangest places…

I don’t know why, but it always seems I get inspiration when I’m driving around in the car. I don’t know if it’s the music I listen to, or if my state of mind, or what, but  somehow I see these things clearly then.

Today it was scenes from my latest NaNo Novel, Tales of the Spruce Moose. I saw it so clearly, just as if someone had animated it for me. Oh, did I mention that I see these things in anime? Yeah. Anime. As visual a reference as you can get. It makes me wish to God I could draw like my daughter does, because if I could, you know that I’d be doing graphic novels instead of ones where I use words to paint my pictures.

I’ve written the scenes down in a quick notepad file. Hopefully the vision will return when I need it to because, frankly, I’ve had no Impetus to write.

And there goes another quick scene. Gotta go write it down!
