Where Do Ideas Come From?

I came down from Blog Tour ‘high’ this weekend by attending the Southern California Genealogical Society’s annual Jamboree.

Sound dry? Boring? No!

The wide variety of lectures went from blogging (!) to viewing distant terrains to library catalog research to hair styles down through history to laying out lifetime timelines.

Sound dry? Boring? No!

Lecture after lecture my mind went skittering off beyond my ancestors’ dusty, papery pasts to all the stories I could imagine, research, promote, illustrate, plot. A writer/illustrator’s gold mine. Inspiration is where you find it.

As one speaker said, “You’re only limited by your imagination.” Mine was working overtime.
