Need a little help!

So, I said before that I was going to be writing again...yeah, that hasn't happened. I know, I know! I feel horrible about it and I need to get to it, but I've had no time. Really I swear that's the reason...

Okay, so maybe I've spent some time on Pintrest instead of writing, but I'm...uhhh...looking for inspiration...yeah that's it!

To be honest, I'm having a hard time getting things going on the creativity side. Every time I sit down
and open up the computer, I just draw a blank. I feel like I want to write, but I just can't seem to find that creative switch to get me going. And that's where you all come in!

I need some help, and I need you all to provide it for me. My last post was about Pintrest - and yes I am completely and totally addicted to the site - so I was trying to figure out how to use Pintrest for inspiration, but it's so overwhelming and I can't narrow it down to anything that I want to write about. (Don't worry, I'm going to work on my SWAT men, but I need to get going again first). And that brings me to what I need from all of you...

1. Find a picture on Pintrest -it can be anything that you find inspiring, or that you wonder about how that story came to be. Even something like this....

2. Send the link to the picture to me at jessicamcquinn@yahoo.com

3. Include in your email a few details you want incorporated into the story - place, an occupation for a character, a special characteristic for a character...

I will collect all of the entries over the next two weeks (so deadline will be Sunday Aug. 11) and then I will randomly pick three inspirations to use as prompts. So then for the next three weeks after that I will post the stories that I write from those prompts here! Each person whose inspiration I use will get a ebook of Indivisible AND the short story Big Guns. This is open to anyone in any country.

I appreciate all the help that you all can give me to get my creative juices flowing again after my time away. I can't wait to see what you all send me!! I'm so excited!!
