For me that's usually drawing or researching related topics of interest. For a quick dose of inspiration, I usually turn to music. I have several writing playlists for the characters in my books so that I can set the mood for writing them.(less)

When I was a child, I was completely smitten with the romance between Robin Hood and Maid Marian; and a little later, Rick & Evelyn (of 'The Mummy').

These days, my favorite couple would have to be a tie between either Carlos and Cecil ('Welcome To Night Vale') or Yuri and Viktor ('Yuri On Ice').

Ultimately, my favorite couples are ones that think the absolute world of each other and push each other to be the best versions of themselves.(less)
