RTW: Share the Inspiration…and a Winner!!

Inspiring Song of the Day: “True Colors” by Cyndi Lauper

Yay! It’s Wednesday again, which means we’re joining the amazing chicas at YA Highway for Road Trip Wednesday! Here’s what’s on tap this week:

Share some images that inspire your WIP(s). We’ve done this topic before, but it’s been quite a while, and pictures are always fun.
I don’t think we shared pictures last time, so we decided to finally take a stab at it.
Pam’s Pic:
During my last revision round of Wants, I decided to give one of my protagonists, Savannah, a dance icon since dance is so important to her. I researched a few famous dancers, and I decided to use Broadway choreographer, Twyla Tharp:

This is the picture that Savannah keeps on her bedroom mirror. She sometimes talks to Ms. Tharp when she’s upset. Okay, I know that sounds crazy but…never mind, I think Savannah is a bit crazy. πŸ™‚

Quita’s Pic:

During my second round of revisions for In Limbo, Pam suggested that I look up pictures of the early 1900s so that I could get a better feel for the time period. Since the novel is based around the Spanish Influenza, I looked for pictures that showed the impact of the disease on society:

This pic demonstrates the severity of the disease and how many people were affected. It still sends shivers up my spine.

So, those are the pictures that inspire us. Do you all use pictures for inspiration?

But wait…there’s more! The winner of How I Stole Johnny Depp’s Alien Girlfriend is…..


Okay, so she’s our Weekend of Awesome bud, but we promise you this wasn’t rigged! Erinn, we’ll be emailing you shortly. πŸ™‚
