Sometimes inspiration arrives in the most unlikely places.
I was in a mall a few months ago and wandered into a shoe store to look for some boots. I quickly realized that I was far too old for this particular shop, but they were playing a great song by PM Dawn that I hadn't heard in probably more than ten years.
And voila! A scene for my book popped into my head, one where the main character dreams she's been turned into a row of paper dolls. Sounds weird, I know, but I really dig it.
So there, you just never know where stuff will come from. Thanks, teenybopper shoe store!
