Character Inspiration-Sometimes the best book characters are inspired by people in the author’s life. Observe the people around you, even at family dinners, and get some inspiration for your next character. Eccentric Uncle Frank or emo cousin Veronica might be just the inspiration you need to get started on your character creation.
Set the Scene-Look to the weather when deciding a setting for your next story. You could write a love story where two people meet in a snowstorm, a murder mystery at a ski lodge or anything else that comes to mind. The snow and cold weather make perfect settings for both beautiful and tragic stories.
Play in the Snow-Creating something in the snow might help you think of a new idea or help develop an idea for a story or character. Put your gloves on and go make a snowman or snow igloo—pretty much anything you can think of. This will help get your creative juices flowing and while your hands are busy building, your mind will be free to come up with the next great idea.
