RTW: Images that Inspire/Represent my WIP

This week's Road Trip Wednesday question over at YA Highway is a fun one! I've just been getting into making boards for my WIPs over on Pinterest, and it's really addicting!

What images inspire your WIP?

Inspiration for my WIP:
So, I decided to post some images that capture a bit of the world in which my current WIP: The Awakening of Minna Gray, is set. Some of these elements are very close to how I imagined them. Others would need a little tweaking. For example, they project things on the Wall to make it seem less "wall-ish"

The City of Alkara
The first half of the story is set in a walled-in city by the sea. Minna just moved there. It seems so perfect.


Of course, things aren't always what they seem.
First it's just the visions. But then someone gets taken.

The Outlands

At night, they flee by rowboat, bypassing the Wall to enter the Outlands. They were always told it was a barren waste. Some of it still is.




So, what images help inspire elements of your WIP?


  1. Wow! First of all those pictures are breath taking! and your story sounds very very interesting :D Thanks for sharing!

  2. What gorgeous images. That last one with the green vine pathway is especially striking. And I love the concept behind your story with the walled in city. Happy writing!

  3. Oh, I love all of these. They are all really captivating.

  4. OOooooo, love these! Amazing images you got there! Now I'm intrigued about your story ;)

    If you're interested in seeing the original sources, click the photos. I did try to track the source down if I could! Sometimes it was just something someone had uploaded on Pinterest, and I couldn't trace it any further though =/

    The oar splash photo is from my little sis - Anika Thomas - who is at university studying photography!

  9. Great, atmospheric images! Thanks for sharing, and for joining us on the road trip!

  10. Oh wow, I feel like those pictures have already brought me into your world. Beautiful!

  11. A walled in city is such a great setting. There's inherent conflict in getting in and out! I liked these images a lot.
