Sometimes writers need a little inspiration and I got some this past weekend from a friend. She said that, when she's trying to imagine a home for her characters, she goes out and drives around different neighborhoods looking at houses. She finds one she can imagine her character living in and then takes a few notes to help her when she's plotting out her pages.
I thought this was a great idea. I might even use it the next time I'm trying to create a setting for my character.
Do you have any ideas like this that you use when you write? Please share your inspiration in the comments section.
