People always ask me where I find my inspiration. And my answer is always, “I wake up each morning and watch everything and everyone around me.” Inspiration is everywhere, from the mood my seventeen year old daughter wakes up in, to the things my twelve year old daughter says on the cell phone with her friends. With that said, I watch the news a lot, too, just to see what people are doing. This year there’s been one recurring thought as I’ve watched, “What’s With The Weather”?
During the summer, I was at work one day (my day job was at a law firm until about a month ago when I moved to the court house) on the seventeenth floor of a twenty-five story office building. While standing and talking to a co-worker the floor seemed to ripple beneath me. Now, because my mind is usually in the fictional world I’m immediately thinking that it feels like I’m sinking in quicksand or traveling through another dimension. In a few seconds my co-worker screeches because the floor has moved again and now if feels like the entire building is swaying around us. Can you say earthquake? In Maryland??? I was scared out of my mind as I tried to hurry out of the building.
Weather has continued to be an intricate part of the Mystyx series as that is the origination of the supernatural power Jake, Sasha, Krystal and Lindsey possess. In Mesmerize, Lindsey’s telepathic power has actually manifested into an empathic stage. With the increasing changes in weather patterns all of the Mystyx experience a growth in their powers. Luckily for me, it seems the real world is eager to cooperate with my fictional one as we continue to experience weather anomalies such as the city sized iceberg breaking off from an Antarctic glazier. I wonder what effect that could have on the Mystyx and their journey???
Do you have any suggestions for how the weather could continue to hinder or help the Mystyx? Post your thoughts and be registered to win a signed copy of Mesmerize.
