I have a story to tell. It’s all there, waiting for me to sort out the details and decide how much or how little to tell. It’s all there, waiting for me to compile its contents into neatly written chapters for others to consume.
I still needed inspiration though, or maybe it’s inspiration peppered with courage? Anyways, I found this picture on Twenty20.com, a forum for photographers to post their work. I was hit hard by a particular photo by Aliciadug, and she was kind enough to let me use her work. It may be naive of me to think that a publisher would allow me to design my own cover, but if I had it my way, this is what it would look like (or something very similar).
The photo tells my story, a young girl living a life of dysfunction after her mother is murdered. I plan to keep this photo around as I write, hoping it will provoke some emotions that can often be difficult for me to express. So thank you Alicia for kindly letting me use your work, it will serve much more purpose than just a cover to a book. Thanks again 🙂
Does anyone else have any tips for keeping the words flowing? I’m not new to writing, but I am new to writing longer works, novels, memoirs, etc., and I would love to hear any suggestions on tactics to keep my story alive, and growing! Thanks!
