Change of Scenery 

Spent the weekend in California, it never ceases to amaze how something like that gets the creative juices flowing.

Different people, cultures, views and vibes- can’t wait to get it down on paper.

Atmosphere 

  
Inspiration for a story can be found anywhere. The novel I am writing for NaNoWrimo takes place in present time but there are hints of the past. 

When I think of what kind of past I want to incorporate I can’t help but think of the historic Hotel Colorado in Glenwood Springs. The grandeur, the beauty, and the mystery of what lies behind the scenes calls out to me.

What is everyone else using to help build their novels?
