Friday Inspiration – Winter Wonderland

Well, it has been in the 90’s* here and for me that is just unacceptable. In an attempt to make myself feel better, I’ve been looking at pictures of snowy landscapes lately. This got me thinking: how do we write in each season? Well, I tend to write scenes where the characters are having the same type of weather as I am. For instance, if there is a snowstorm happening, you can bet my characters are going to battle through a snowstorm.

This is NOT convenient when, say, I need to write about a snowstorm and it is 90+ degrees and the sun is shining and my garden is wilting. For that, I have photos. I like to look at photos I’ve taken first, to see if I can get in the right mind set from that. Here are some examples:

Winter in Norway - gotta love the snow!

Another image from Norway - this one makes me think of "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe."

It's not just winter scenes that I like to plunge back into!

These are just a few examples of the kinds of photos that can inspire me to write a scene opposite of what is actually happening outside. I encourage you to look at photos you’ve taken or do a Google search. You might be surprised what inspires you!

What do you do to keep inspired when the weather is less than pleasant?

Take care, fellow travelers.
