A picture can inspire a million stories.
I took this picture yesterday, inspired by what others have done with water, that I can’t seem to do. But, I loved what I captured anyway, so this is one of the images I caught.
But I wanted to see what would happen if I played with the colors a bit. How different would the story be then.
So you see, a picture can turn into all kinds of different stories by changing the color a bit and changing the mood a lot. The same with writing scenes. I was trying to decide on the perfect bedroom for a hot, alpha jaguar male. I looked up male bedrooms and they had a lot of purple featured. Not like dark purple, a royal color, the color only allowed to be worn by the royals. But more soft purple that I would think perfect for a young girl’s room.
A friend sent me a link that was perfect. Black and white, touches of red, but the best? A zebra rug. Now, as he’s a jaguar, he wouldn’t be hunting zebra in South America, but he is a hunter, and a zebra rug was perfect.
So which of these pictures would inspire you? Which do you like the best? Which would feed into your fantasy?
I’m off to write, so behave yourselves and still manage to have a wonderful TGIF! 🙂
