It's really the first Wednesday in February already! That means it's time for another installment of the Insecure Writer's Support Group, created by Alex J. Cavanaugh. Visit him and the main IWSG Website to join us in the fun.
The optional question for this month is: Has a single photo or work of art ever inspired a story? What was it and did you finish it?
I haven't had a photo or work of art inspire a whole story, but I have used art as inspiration for characters, monsters, etc. Most prominent is the design of the iron giants in Fractured Princess, which I modeled after Umberto Boccioni's "Unique Forms of Continuity in Space."
My version isn't as scary as Boccioni's, but I meant for it to be. D'ah well.
What about you all?
