Hi ya’ll This is week 15 of the MFRW52week blog Challenge. It seems like somehow last week I posted the wrong post. It was supposed to be where my inspiration comes from and this week was the social media one. I am blaming my dyslexia for the mix-up. I am going to do a little combo thingy to catch up!
I get my inspirations from so many places. It could be a person I see walking down the street and I wonder what is his or her story. Sometimes an outfit on the computer or ad on TV and a Character may pop into my mind. Of course, all the yummy men on Pinterest help me describe my leading man or protagonist. As you see It is easy for me to get character inspiration. Plots are another thing altogether. I really struggle with that. Luckily I am a character driven writer and my characters tend to lead me down the path of the story. I like writing outside of the box so I may take a trope or two and twist them up. Sometimes stories just pop into my head so I keep pens and paper nearby.
I hang out mostly at facebook, twitter, Google + and Pinterest. I have an author page Cathy Brockman Romance but I forget to use it as I hang out mostly at my main Facebook page. I have a Freebie book page called Happy Readings, where I post free and sale priced books I find too if you would like to check it out. ( authors feel free to post your free or 99 cent books there. Be sure to put a date they are free though). I love stalkers so come join me. I love making new friends so come hang out with me!
Where do you get your inspiration? Let’s go see where the others hang out.

The inspiration week was very enlightening. I enjoyed seeing where others got ideas. Little things like a stranger walking down the street and take on a life of its own.
Thank you Meka
Love pinterest as a source of information, have to go look for the yummy men.
Thanks for joining the post.
Thanks for stopping by Helen. I only have a few boards on there pertaining to writing. I started a new one only for my writing but found its hard to keep up with two. Pinterest has removed several of my yummy men and sexy couples lol.
I, too, spend most of my social media time on my personal Facebook profile, Twitter, and then my FB author page, but not a LOT of time. I don’t dare touch Pinterest because I know I’d be there often. I will get into it one day.
I am trying to learn to do this properly without spending all day at it. So far I am baffled lol
You are an amazing writer and person, Cathy, and I admire all your goings on.
Awe Thank you!
