One of the pieces of advice I give authors, especially those just starting out, is to keep a journal. No it is not the diary once popular among young girls. What the authors journal contains are things such as a name that says “I am xxx.” URL’s, photographs, or rough sketches of a place or time that will serve as the basis for a locale.
Storylines, notes, tidbits of thoughts fill more pages. Below is one item of interest for writers of romance.
Archaeologists with the University of Leicester uncovered remains of two skeletons holding hands believed to have been resting that way for at least 700 years.
Think of the circumstances that put them in the position. Did he die first? Or did she? Expand the thought and there is the beginnings of a story.
