This week on Romance Writers Weekly - Leslie Hachtel asks:
People always ask me where I get my inspiration for my stories. Where do you get your inspiration?
If you joined me from A.S. Fenichel, welcome!
One of my main inspirations are the people around me. I truly believe there is someone for everyone, and love to hear how people met. Two couples I know met while on online gaming sites (like Dungeons and Dragons, not poker). I’d love to write a romance with that premise. Also, I like to look at a couple that seem oddly matched (to me, at least) and think about why their relationship works. And then there are those romances that are slow to bloom—high school friends who meet years later (or maybe have even remained friends the whole time) and suddenly have the blinkers removed and see their soulmate. I know a few of these couples, as well.
I also find inspiration in locations. Some places truly are more romantic than others, and I think Northern British Columbia is one of those places. I do some of my most creative thinking while out on the water in our boat. And even winter has its charm (especially the coming back inside and warming up part!).
What about you? Even if you’re not a writer, where do you find the spark for your creativity?
