Day 21 of August Author WIP Challenge
When did you get the idea for your WIP?
This might be my favorite question because initial inspirations are so fantastic and wonderful.
Mine for my WIP came from two things.
1) This statement of "what does love feel like?" 2) An image of a young girl spinning in a meadow, bare feet, natural curly blonde hair, and a white dress (which was a look inspired by one of my friends)
I ended up writing a short story from the perspective of the personal guardsmen of a princess, and it was about his love for this girl, this princess.
However, as I explored this concept more, I realized I wanted to make it a novel and really dive into these characters and their feelings. Making a love story so short felt cheap and didn't fully convey my desire to show what love looks like and feels like.
Of course, now, my WIP is so much more than a love story.
Also, major inspiration for my WIP is the music sequence of "This is My Idea" in the movie The Swan Princess. Please go watch it now if you've never seen it. --------------------------------
