Fun for Friday: Images as Inspiration

Skeleton flowersI’m a very visual person, so it’s not entirely surprising that I get a lot of mileage out of images of unusual things. It might be something as simple as these glass-like flowers. The description I found for them says “A flower whose petals turn clear as glass when wet… Diphylleia Grayi otherwise known as the Skeleton flower is the stuff of fairy tales. (Grows in the northern part of Japan.)”

Because I like using images to inspire my writing, I use Pinterest a lot when I’m trying to pull together an idea. I’ve also got one Pinterest board for interesting faces, places, or things, which may someday find their way into my stories. A couple of the images on this board already have made their way into my writing, in fact, though they may not always be easy to spot!
