Snatched from DeviantArt.com
One of the things that I love most about DeviantArt.com, is that the images are often impossible. Take the one above, you have a kidlet witch looking over a cliff into a sky of sea creatures. And it's stunning. There's a whole story there just waiting to be told! Can you just imagine the possibilities?
So what happens if we take this imaginative freedom and apply it to our own novels?
Maybe nothing. Maybe we wind up having a little fun, but not loving what comes from the play. No harm, no foul.
But then again, maybe something. Maybe through playing and experimenting with the impossible, the improbable, you come up with a plot as hauntingly imaginative as the one in Daughter of Smoke and Bone, for example.
You don't have to be a grown up, serious writer every minute of the day. Where's the fun in that? Think of something impossible and run with it! And while you're brainstorming, feel free to share some of your most outlandish ideas. Or share how playing with impossibilities has changed your plot for the better. I'd love to hear from other wildly imaginative brains with free reign!
