How creativity pushes us forward
@Robert R. Fike You inspire me. And this isn't some phoned in circle of friends building each other up. This is genuine. I've really been digging our brainstorming sessions around lightracer, because you've honed some of my manic word vomit into some stellar concrete stuff.
This is great. I often get kernels of ideas from other forms and then push it through my creative flow and see what comes out the other side. For my first novel Friends in Low Places, a book about longstanding relationships, I was inspired by an ABC Network show Million Little Things that showed how deep male relationships can be told without irony. It provided a glimpse of how I could write a fictionalized version of adventures I've been on with my buddies over the years. Inspiration is the seed. How you plant, cultivate, nourish and harvest it is your own. Great post!
