I’m really fortunate to have a DH and a close writing friend who are both happy to brain storm story ideas with me. I seem to have this process of a HUGE blank space where I *wait* for inspiration to strike and of course, it never does. I live for the day an idea blasts into me with the clarity of a magnifiying glass but nine books done and dusted and it has never happened.
So I knew I would have to just sit down and start asking, ‘what if?’ questions and ‘why would’ questions. I started on Saturday and by Sunday afternoon I had a story idea in a very basic form and a husband who after having a million questions fired at him said, ‘I’m brain dead.’
Fair enough, he’d been in the war zone, he’d given his all, it was time to move onto a fresh brain. My mate, Annie West, Harlequin Presents Author, came to the phone and in ten minutes had given me a light bulb moment about why my hero was holding himself back from relationships. Thank you, Annie!
Now I am on the search for hero inspiration and what better place to go than the Pink Heart Society’s Male on Monday archives 🙂 This guy caught my eye. I’m not 100% certain but I am going to have fun looking!
So the next step is a collage and I am off to look through magazines, and then have loads of fun with paste and scissors and to find a heroine or just another hero….
