The story of how Frankenstein came to be is one of those that illustrate the romance of a creative community. I love to think about the artistic dialogue exchanged between people like Chopin and Liszt or Hemmingway and Dos Passos.
One of my biggest inspirations is hanging out with other writers. I love the creative surge that comes from sharing ideas and discussing stories and characters. Unfortunately, it doesn’t happen often enough!
However, inspiration doesn’t just come from discussions with other writers, it also comes from interactions with anyone who has an opinion on art.
In that vein, The Ballroom Blog is a bit of nonstop inspiration. I’m surrounded by fabulous authors and fabulous ballroom regulars, writers and readers alike, who fill Lady B’s with fabulous energy. (Lady B’s is clearly full of fabulousness!) So today’s post is a thank you to all of you who help refill the creative glass every day!
And just for fun, I’ll leave you all with a clip of the beginning of Gothic. After all, we don’t really need any excuse for a movie with Julian Sands.
