Inspiration Board #7 – part three

Images, make my story come to life!

They inspire me, they help me see my characters, where they go, what kind of trouble they get into, and sets the mood of the story. That’s why most of the images are dark and moody…with a little touch of color here and there. Just like my story!

Images are such a useful tool for me, especially since I’m an artist/designer/potter/photographer and writer. They help me design my story world. I can visualize my story in my mind, but seeing images related to my story takes it a step further.

That’s why I make these inspiration boards.

I love making inspiration boards for my book

 But, the other day it occurred to me, that they’re not the right size for Pinterest. So, I had an idea…don’t you just love this photo? Found it on Pinterest.

It’s something I can use for Pinterest and for my Blog…Story Mood Boards.

I make them with a Pinterest size graphic, so they’re Pinterest friendly. 

Hopefully people will like them and pin them.

I Finally Found the Real Rusty Lawrence

Raven Hill Rusty Lawrence by Melinda Marie Alexander

I’ve been searching for an image of my character ~ Rusty Lawrence (AKA ~ Charles Oliver Wendell Lawrence III) for a very long time now. I actually gave up and just decided to use this image. It’s close, but not exactly like the image I have in my head.

Then last night, when I wasn’t looking for Rusty anymore, I found him.

This is the Rusty I’ve been visualizing for so long.

It’s so nice to finally have an image of him.

Inspiration Board #6 – part seven

chapter six part 7 with textjpg

For a split second, I thought I saw something in the window on the second floor. Suddenly a gust of wind blew my hair in my face, and I couldn’t see. I pulled my hair away from my eyes, and that’s when I saw it. I froze. I couldn’t move. I was afraid, but yet I was fascinated. I took a couple of steps closer, so I could get a better look. It looked like a girl standing in the window, but not a real one. It was a misty white cloud in the shape of a girl. I stared at the window, then suddenly the misty white girl looked real, and she was staring right at me. I gasped. I couldn’t look away, I don’t know why. I just kept staring at her, and she kept staring at me. Then she put her index finger to her mouth, like she didn’t want me to tell anyone. I shivered. The hair on the back of my neck was standing up, and I could feel goose bumps all over my body.

“This can’t be real. It can’t be!”
