What Inspires You? Do You Ever Get Stuck? What do You Do Then?

A word, a scent, a taste wakes that fairy in me, who touches her magical wand on my shoulder, and stories start coming alive in my mind’s eye. A sentence I read, a piece of news I hear, a flicker of joy imperceptible to the undiscerning eye turn into a plot.

What do I do when I’m stuck? I paint. Painting has this magical effect on me in that it denudes my subconscious. And once that happens, I cannot not write.
