Little Princesses and Dark Horses
Though I'm not a HUGE fan of Martin's writing style, I simply can't get enough of his characters and plot lines! They're fantastic!
One of my favorite ways to get the creative juices flowing is to take a great phrase, line, or image and try to create a story around it. When a particular line or image stands out to me while I'm reading, I always have to stop and write it down so I can think about it more later.
So here's my challenge: I'm going to give you an image I recently picked up in my reading. Everyone tell me what it makes you think of. You can just give me a line or two. Or, by all means, give me a whole story. In a few days, I'll tell you what I came up with. This doesn't have to be all fleshed out; it's just an exercise. Have fun with it.
