Another of my watching highlights over the past few weeks was watching a series of doco’s on ancient Egypt. Notable for how poor a narrative it had, but so chock full of tiny half explained facts that I’m certain to be trawling the google-verse for stuff on Egypt for months!
As I watched I got inspired. Not by tales of tombs, masks of gold and lapis, or mummies, but by a bit of architecture.
It will appear somewhere in one of the novels I’m working on currently, even though there’s nothing Egyptian about my world. Suddenly I found myself itching to pick up my pen or baby computer and write a scene just to work out exactly how it would fit into life of my characters.
Inspiration comes from the least expected places.
