Recently I read the novel Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs, which is just such a cool book that I’ve been telling everyone about it.  Basically, the author took a bunch of weird old photographs and wrote a story around them.  He certainly had some really, really weird photos, from people who collect weird photos.

Inspired, I headed over to the Hollis Flea Market in search of my own weird photos.  I found a few, too, which I will scan and post when I get a chance.  None of them are quite as weird as the ones Riggs found, but just the idea of writing about ghostly sorts of people inspired me to do more writing last night than I’ve done all summer.  I pulled out an old unfinished favorite of mine – Rumors – and started with the main character looking through old photo albums.

Hopefully this will keep me inspired for longer than one night!  Especially since Janina and I have rescheduled our writing group for Monday nights for the remainder of the summer…
