I love how inspiration strikes when I’m not particularly looking for it, and I’m a sucker for starscapes  and fantasy imagery.

With almost every image I could feel my brain ticking over; constructing scenes and dialogue and characters and … and … backstory … and … everything. I was in writerly bliss.

One of them also gave me a final image to connect the dots in the overall story arc for my serial. The first draft of episode 1 is now done, complete with the obligatory cliffhanger. I’m about to go back through it and insert a whole bunch of hints, clues, allusions and red herrings that I’ll run with in future episodes – or not! (messing with your mind)

Mrs Widds suggested I take a gander at ‘Twin Peaks’  just for the cliffhanger endings.

I’ll let you know how it goes.
