As I mentioned in some earlier posts, I was surprised to discover so much story inspiration on my recent trip to the big island of Hawaii. I’m not much of a beach person, but I did figure I’d spend a lot of time swimming, snorkeling, and unwinding.
As it turned out, my brain never did turn off and I came up with some crucial world building details for a project I’m working on. Thankfully, I had made sure to bring my brainstorming journal with me and I was able to scribble down a few pages of furious notes and doodles . . .
Messy, as usual! But these types of pages always turn out to be a lifeline during the writing process.
