That's a great but difficult question to answer. I'd have to say everything inspires me. I overheard a conversation yesterday that inspired a character in the book I'm currently writing. I have a notebook with ideas in it and I'm always writing in. Thanks! (less)

“The living room was pitch black – too dark to see anyone moving about. Still they heard the floor boards creak. Someone was there, downstairs, in their house. There was no doubt about it.”
J.C. Gatlin, 21 Dares

“into the dimly lit apartment. Josh in front. Abbie, cradling Clem in her arms, one step behind. A lamp shined in the living room. The TV was showing an old episode of the Twilight Zone. Wrapping paper and uneaten cake still lay scattered on the coffee table. Clem meowed as Abbie turned toward the kitchen. Dharma came around the corner,”
J.C. Gatlin, 21 Dares

“apartment door. Clem strutted out, meowing and winding between Abbie’s legs. Abbie picked up the cat as she peeked into the living room. Everything looked quiet. They stepped into the dimly lit apartment. Josh in front. Abbie, cradling Clem in her arms, one step behind. A lamp shined in the living room. The TV was showing an old episode of the Twilight Zone. Wrapping paper and uneaten cake still lay scattered on the coffee table. Clem meowed as Abbie turned toward the kitchen. Dharma came around the corner,”
