Many writers are visually inspired. An evocative photo can be a great starting point to a story, especially when you are experiencing writer’s block. I’m a big fan of photographer Ashley Inguanta’s work. Spend some time examining this photo, and see where your muse takes you. While this is a flat image, consider the other senses: smells, textures, sound. Photo by Ashley Inguanta.
