Mr Xanadu’s Inspirational Inspiration
The Xanadu Report
Sometimes it’s hard to come up with a good idea for a post. I for one usually end up writing numerous copies of the same post before actually putting it up (I’ve also got OCD, but that’s for another blog article). Sometimes we can’t post because we’re lost in the stories, other times it’s because real life is draining us, but one of the all time biggest problems is because we have no inspiration. I don’t need to go on a tirade about how essential inspiration is when writing, because you’re all aware of it already.
In my spare time, I tend to make pictures and artwork using Garry’s Mod (as you may already be aware of, from reading my last article). A lot of them are made just for gits and shiggles, and just sit around gathering dust. So, as my gift to you all (“you all” being the RP community), I’m uploading some of the pictures here to the blog for everyone to use for inspiration.
Below you’ll find a picture depicting a situation, along with a short paragraph that you can use as a springboard. Feel free to use these for either posts, games, fanfics, or whatever. All I ask is that you guys leave links to what you’ve used them for in the comments! Seriously, share your work, I’d love to see what you guys do with these pics!
(Most are sci-fi or modern, I’ll try to create some fantasy ones for another article)
