Every time I come up with a new idea for a book, it is always based upon a life lesson or a life experience. I also like to incorporate real things and places that I have experienced to help tell the story. In addition, I love to incorporate real people into fictional characters but embellish the character in order to create an engaging story. When I read fiction, to me, it always seems as if fiction is based on truth. I believe that many times it is, and people find ways to share viewpoints of life experiences by mixing up characters, places and dialogue. It is great fun and a superb outlet for inner creativity.
Check out this ad by Hermes Paris. I love to look at this photo as it is a perfect example of advertising depicting more than one thing for more than one purpose. Brilliant creativity! For me, this is great inspiration. 🙂
