What’s on My Inspiration Board? #41

I started out in college as a fine arts major. Even though I ultimately ended up being a writer, I still see the world in pictures.

When I’m building a new story, images allow me to physically see the characters and the places the way I visualize them in my mind. Inspiration boards are also a great way to get the feel for the mood of the book, or a particular scene.

One wall in my office serves as my inspiration board for the Legion Series. Here’s a look at some of the images that inspired me this week.
