Visual Stimulation

So I've been working on a MG manuscript for quite a while now. At least that's the way it feels. But recently I had an epiphany. I'm thinking of including some graphics with the story at least for inspiration.

And I've been working with the graphics--well, the idea of it, I'm no artist but I have quite a few of them around me in my house--to develop my story more and enrich the plot. It's odd how I haven't thought of this before. I mean after all my brother was an artist, my husband's uncle is an artist, my boys are artists. Unfortunately that one gene somehow skipped by me but . . . I'm thinking, why not take advantage of everything around me?

How 'bout you? Are you using everything available to you in your writing?
