Road Trip Wednesday: Inspirational Images

It's time for another Road Trip Wednesday, a blog carnival hosted by the lovely ladies of YA Highway.
This week's question:



What images inspire/ represent your WIP or favorite book?


This is perfect because on Monday I posted a few lines from my current WIP. Now I can share some images that go with it.

I haven't really collected inspirational images before, but with the freeform corkboard and Tumblr, it makes it so easy to save and collect the things that I come across. Here are a few things I've saved:

















Wheee! If only the actual words were that good. Heh. What do you think? Does it make you want to read it? ;-)

  8. In high school, I worked at a supermarket during the summers and I once slipped this cute cashier a business card that said "You are beautiful. I am shy."

    Not even joking about that. lol

    2. One semi date/lunch break together at the KFC in the strip mall and the rest of that summer working together exchanging pleasantries. Nothing ventured, nothing gained...however small.

  10. Yes, it does make me want to read it. I love the images of the notes. I grew up before the Internet--before everyone typed all their correspondence. To me, there is just nothing more romantic than a handwritten note.
