A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words....

...or a whole novel. Today's YA Highway Road Trip Wednesday writing prompt asks:


Share some images that inspire your WIP(s).





These images from Avatar gave a bit of inspiration to The MirrorMasters. I'd always envisioned Leah's homeworld as being a moon of a large ringed gas giant planet, and I love the first image as a visual of how it might look to have a large planet loom so prominently in the night sky. The second one is an image of the bioluminescent jungle that inspired my imagination in creating the jungle area of her homeworld, Jantyr.

Can't wait to see the images everyone chose!

  7. Avatar did a great job of placing the viewer in a strange but beautiful world, as these pictures show. I think you could almost come up with endless inspiration from artwork like this!
