As an author, I’m always asked what inspires me to do what I do. The answer? A lot of things. It can be as easy as song lyrics to the weather.
Everyone gets motivated by something. For my story ‘Mail Order Groom’ that’s included in the latest episode of Romantic Tales: Bedtime Stories Episode Six, I explored the world of internet dating, the pitfalls and the good that can come out of it.
I was inspired to write that story about of all things, a movie about a Mail Order Bride called “Birthday Girl”. Nicole Kidman was the mail order bride to Ben Chaplin’s groom and the hijinks that ensued were so crazy that I was left wondering. ‘If a guy can order a bride, why can’t a female? If we weren’t with our significant others and could find the man of our dreams through a website, would you do it?’
It also lately has been wondering if online dating is for me. I’m 42 and have been single for the last couple of years. I’ve been debating if I want to spend the remainder of my years alone or would I like someone to share it with. Some of my friends have had success at online dating, others haven’t. So my answer for now is, I don’t know. I’m still figuring it out. But in the meantime, I’m going to enjoy writing Jessie’s ride and maybe that will make me bold enough to take the plunge myself one day. (There is someone out there for everyone, right? LOL)
So, my question to all of you is what are your inspirations? Is it a song, a book, a sentence? A person? Tell me who.
