I saw the new King Arthur movie. It was amazing!
100% agree with you, Michelle, a good movie always gets my creative juices flowing. There's something about the difference in medium. I don't know what it is... Well, maybe it's my dormant hope that my book(s) will be made into a movie.
FACEOFF on Syfy channel is my go too creative pick-me-up. Artists following their dreams fills me with joy and excitement to follow a creative path. Immersing myself in TV shows with memorable characters always inspires me. I love long running shows where I get attached to characters. I want to bring that to my own writing. I'd say movies, but since I became a mom, watching movies doesn't happen much anymore.
Walking the dogs helps me brainstorm, as do long car rides. Reading used to be my top form of entertainment, but I've found it less "fun" while working on my own stuff, especially in a revision stage.
I also love taking walks in the woods or around lakes. Sometimes I intentionally do it around dusk, so the creepy comes out in my creative mind. Ha! But a good movie also gets my juices flowing too. Doesn't matter the type, something always sparks. I've got a LONG list of book ideas that will probably outstretch my lifespan. Well, that's going on the assumption that most authors only have 1-2 books published a year. Now, if I can get pubbed like James Patterson, well now, I might see them all into fruition! :-)
