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, and another is for my upcoming YA contemporary romance for Imprint, The Lovely Reckless. Here’s a look at some of the images that inspired me this week.
