Thursday Thirteen: Sources of inspiration


I’ve had a week where it seems as if everything has inspired me somehow. Here’s a partial list:

1. Janet
2. the punching bag in the back seat of the car I parked next to
3. my pillow
4. Boot camp today
5. A bag of Goldfish crackers (wait. That inspired the cat. To eat them. Same for the spaghetti sauce. And popcorn.)
6. The NHL playoffs
7. Mary
8. My bicycle
9. This book I’m reading (Greg Mortenson’s Three Cups of Tea)
10. Opening my PO Box
11. Celtic Librarian
12. The couch in my family room
13. A cool spring evening spent on a soccer field

Ahh, to have the proper time to work this into fiction now…

    I have a punching bag in the corner of my living room. 😉 It is used more often by the children than by the dude who bought it though. hehe

    Ohhh… I miss my punching bag. And 3 cups of tea is definitely a must read. My sister just met him at a book signing for his newest. So its almost like you know someone who knows someone who knows him.
    And I realize I never sent my apologies to trevor. I hope he doesn’t hold grudges about being linked with zombies and vampires.
    Have a good week

    That’s where the inspiration comes from – observation of the ordinary.
