The Inspiration for Imprinted by McKayla Schutt
Author Inspiration: Where do you get your inspiration for your writing? Where did the inspiration for this particular piece come from?
I wanted to talk about inspiration and where I sometimes get it for my stories. Now I want to make this very clear first and for most, I am not crazy! *giggle* Sometimes story ideas just come to me while I day dream or more or less stare into space. When that doesn’t happen sometimes after reading a book I will get an idea of different characteristic I like and maybe some plots that sound interesting but with different characters kind of like a what would you do if you were in the situation. I have once gotten an idea from watching a movie or series that I really liked but that is a rare thing. For my book that is out I got the idea during a challenge I was partaking in called A Story A Day In May. You write one short story a day every day for the entire month of May. Pretty simple right, well it can get harder the farther you get. Well when I was half way through the month I had a dream about a woman who was visiting her sister and went to a party with this guy she just met and ends up imprinting with him. After that in the summer I continued with the story finishing it about August. For my current stories they also came to me in dreams. I don’t know why but when I sleep my brain comes up with the most random and yet fascinating stories. Sometimes day dreaming can help me get up stuck when I have writers block. One thing that I almost forgot to mention is that when I am short of words I use these blocks called hicubes. They are meant to help you write poems but for me I use them to write one sentence and go from there. Most of the time I am able to let the words flow after that. There has even been a time where I got inspiration from a few pictures. Like If I really like how someone looks I will use the picture to help me get an accurate description. Alright now that I have broken down how I can get inspiration from almost anywhere I would like to once more say that I am not crazy. I just have a very active imagination. I hope you all have a wonderful day and a great Halloween.
