Inspiration Around Every Corner - Lynne Garner
The ideas started on the first day as I packed my bag (I'm having to stay on site at least three nights a week). This first idea was for a picture book story. A second picture book idea popped into my head whilst I took the picture on the right of two members of staff saying good bye to another. I also have an idea for a non-fiction title which was prompted by a chat with one of the graduates I'm working with. The exciting this is it will mean I'll be writing with a co-writer for the first time.
With each passing day more ridiculous things happen and I'm finding myself scribbling something down every day. I'm not even half way through the contact but already feel I have enough material for a mad-cap sit-com. I've never written one before but I now really have the urge to give it a go.
So next time you're stuck for an idea go and give something new a go. Work outside your comfort zone. Meet new people. You never know it may fuel your imagination as mine has been. Now I'm off to sort another problem and hopefully write a few more notes.
