The Beginnings of an Idea

It's really interesting where some of my ideas from. Like most other authors I get most of my ideas through the media. I get inspired by watching movies and TV shows, by listening to music, by reading books and magazines. For example I got my idea for my first book from a combination of a book on Dragonology and the cartoon Yu-gi-oh. So you can use media to get get your ideas too.

And then there are life experiences. A few years ago I wrote some poetry. Most of that poetry has a theme and that theme was being close to death and surviving it. About a few months before I became ill with Ulcerative Colitis. I lost more than 30 lbs in the period of a few months. But in the beginning I got dehydrated and was throwing up. So I used that experience as inspiration for my poetry.

I also used to play a game that I got some of ideas from and even used to improve some of them. I called it the game of pretend. First you find a quiet place where you can be left alone and where nobody can hear you talk to yourself. Then you put yourself in your mystical place. Then you allow yourself to be as many characters as you want and you banter back and forth (yes, banter, as in to jabber like an idiot). You can do this till the cows come home or at least until the kids wake up. The best place to do it is inside your head, but then you can't record it.

How do you get ideas? What do you think about how I get ideas?

I'm sorry it has been so long since my last posting. I think my butt is too afraid to go near to my computer so I couldn't post anything. That was until last Christmas when I got my new iPad. and even with a new toy it took me some time to get comfortable enough with it to the point where I could post again. So finally...

I don't think I could continue with the second part of my book without introducing you to a new character.I might have mentioned her before as Prag's love interest. And I do have pictures of her.

Her name is Touhana, but she prefers to go by Amelia. Her gift is form-shifting (which is kind of like shape-shifting except that you can only change into a specific number of creatures,in her case three). She is three-quarters Asian Dragon and in that form she's extremely beautiful and attracts male Dragons very easily. In fact she's been jaded by her attractiveness. She hasn't had anything done to her yet, but she is tired of all the attention. Which is why she prefers her human-form. And being in her human-form all the time has lead her to discover books. Her favorite activity is sitting under the cherry tree and reading.

What do you think of this new character?
