Tuesday's Inspiration - The Voice on Waking #MFRWauthor #amwriting #aminspired
We all know writers hear voices. Sometimes they're the characters we're living with every day telling us what we should do about their lives. There are other voices that seem to be those found in dreams.
For the past few mornings I've been awakened with the same words in my head. That means there's a new story in the making but the story will take a long time to develop.
These are the words. "The Emperor is dead. His only child, a daughter is gone. So are her four young ladies in waiting. Those who listen have sent the word to those who hear and the word is spread through the four principalities." Now I know this means a fantasy world is coming into existence. Developing fantasy worlds takes time and planning. So now at night as I fall asleep, I'll be telling myself this story. The time between the words and the finished story or stories can be years. So I'll be patient and wait for more words to come.
How about you? Have you ever heard words and suddenly knew there was a story waiting to be told? So I say, listen to those words and those voices. They're inspirations to start new stories for you to tell.
