Have you ever had inspiration hit when you were in a place that you didn't expect? Well...I found inspiration while sitting on the potty. Yeah, that's funny but true. There are textured walls in our house and if you look hard enough, you'll find that in the midst of the textures, you can see pictures begin to unfold. (Something close to the ink blot pictures that are used in psychiatrists offices.)
This isn't my actual textured wall photo but even looking at this picture, I see a dove and a silhouette of a father and son fishing. I don't expect you to see what I see but it's there. In fact, you may see something even more phenomenal than that.
I've also discovered that by people watching, there lies many stories waiting to unfold. The other night, for instance, I was in line waiting for a jazz concert to start and I saw so many interesting characters. I saw a couple both in motorized wheelchairs...elderly, obviously in love. It gave me a chance to tuck away a story idea in my brain before moving on to the next fascinating people that caught my eye.
Do you find creativity in unexpected ways? If so, where do you get your creativity?
