  1. Interesting inspiration.
    The Relic is an awesome story. I saw the movie first and once I'd read the book, I hated the movie. They left out the main character.
    Thanks for co-hosting today!

  6. What a great way to discover inspiration! I've had a novel born of a sentence or a phrase but never a dream. Thanks for co-hosting this month and happy writing!!

  7. Once I neared the end of my first story (and book), I had outlines for the next four already in my head. That's when you know it was meant to be.

  14. Inspiration is often a mysterious thing. I often have songs just overcome me and when that happens I don't take much credit for it as I think that music comes from God's storehouse.

  17. Wouldn't it be nice if all our stories came to us that easily. ^^

  18. Thanks for co-hosting. Wow! Outlining a whole series in three days sounds awesome.

  19. I find that happens to me sometimes, where an idea for a story just seems to download into my brain. I can never ignore those ideas.

  20. That is a cool story. I loved Relic too. I've read all the Preston/Child books.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Oh that sounds cool. I wish my stories came in a package like that but they often take months of daydreaming. However it works, the story telling part is fun. I wish you all the good luck and marketing opportunities. Thanks for co-hosting today!

  22. What a fantastic (and fast) imput of inspiration! Jealous.

  23. Thanks for co-hosting today, Stephen! I hope that you've had a great day. I have read a number of Preston and Child books. My favorite was "Thunderhead." That was because I love the Four Corners area so much. These two talented authors certainly inspired you! Way to go!

  24. It was great to hear how you began writing. I'm impressed with how soon you knew you'd write spec fic. Good on you! I slip a bit between genres, but all have some element of romance.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Thanks for co-hosting today, Stephen. And thanks for telling us your story about writing.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Is that Preston and Child book related to the movie of the same name? I'll have to check it out, either way.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Your story about writing made for interesting reading. Thank you for co hosting and a Happy New Year to you.

  33. I can just imagine that warehouse full of everything. I wonder how God decides which story to pluck from the shelf for dwnloading...

  34. Impressive, lol. You are a Ninja Writer. I am late making the rounds. Happy IWSG!

  35. That's really cool how you got into writing. It's amazing how a story will just come to you.

    As for my holidays? It was a crazy one this year. We got an unexpected new member to the family and things just got more crazy from there. But it's all good. I haven't even had time to work out my goals for 2020 yet. It's taking time to get back in the swing of things.

  36. What a lovely story about your beginning as a writer. That warehouse of things must be fascinating.

    ReplyDelete
  37. What an incredible real-life story! I can only imagine how easy your books read as well. All I can say is that your writing journey certainly was "meant to be" - a passion, a hobby, a talent... Thank you for co-hosting this month!

  38. It's great how the wheels started turning right away which quickly led you to outlining the whole Breakthrough series. I'm glad that you've been going strong ever since. Thanks for co-hosting the IWSG, Stephen!
