Brain Fodder 2: Fisher Boy & Me

30 Sep

Roo smiles at me and lets the grass slip from his open palm. The torn strands catch on the faint breeze and float past me, earthless roots bobbing like tentacles on the wind. – Fisher Boy & Me, words from my WIP.

All images were collected from the lovely, inspirational site,

There are so many blog posts I should be doing right now. I need to finish the second part of my time at Brisbane Writer’s Festival. I need to reveal the exciting news I have to tell you (it really is quite exciting, I swear!). Right now, I can’t find the words to do those blogs justice, and that’s probably because my brain is all abuzz over what I hope will soon be my new WIP.

Below is a collection of images I’ve saved to use as inspiration for my latest work. The title is an old one now – it was what I’d originally planned the novel to be when I first starting the initial plotting months ago. But since I’ve completed ‘Times of Bright’ and come back to this, the story has evolved so much, and while I have a new title and a new plot to go with it, I don’t want to reveal too many details about it just yet (for fear of jinxing my fickle muse, and also because it could change another half dozen times before I truly start writing).

What I can say (because this has remained a constant right from the start and will continue to be a constant until I finish the drafts to come), is that this novel is a love story about a girl and a boy and fishing.

All these images I have found on (a truly heaven-sent site full of the most beautiful pictures you will ever find anywhere).

As the sun dips low, signalling the end of another day in this new and desolate world, the same five words swirl in my mind, back and forth like a metronome: the world is a disease. To me, right now, it is the God-honest truth. – Times of Bright, words from my work-in-progress.

“And when the darkness falls away and the light returns I see that this new world isn’t really a new world after all; it is as bland and grey as it has always been, and I am bland and grey in it.” – Times of Bright, words from my work-in-progress.

These are the things (and these, and these, too), that have inspired my novel-in-the-works:

A while ago I did a picspam to re-inspire myself to pick up the (main) WIP again. Since I’m well and truly back into the swing of this writing thing, I thought I’d post another for all those who are interested in this novel I’ve been working so tirelessly on for over a year now.

If you missed the first ‘Brain Fodder,’ you can see it here.

Enough of my rambling – time to make with the pictures!

This is my way of trying to get my mind back on my current WIP more fully.

The following is a collection of images that directly relate to the speculative fiction piece I’m working on. I’d keep them in a folder on my computer but it’s easier for me to see them all at once if I post them here, so really I’m just using this blog as a photographic library, of a sort.

More will be added as I find them.
