On Writing: Images that Inspire Creativity



I have been on a picture-taking spree recently. In the area where I live (the Midwestern United States) the cold weather and freezing temperatures make it difficult to go exploring to find new and unusual sites. So I am trying to do a little local sight-seeing while the weather is still nice.

I recently visited Midway Village and Museum and snapped these photos. Midway Village consists of a grouping of 26 historical houses and buildings from the late 1890s to the early 1900s. The 19th century gardens are lovely.

Another claim to fame—the Sock Monkey was first created in the city of Rockford. The Museum hosts a Sock Monkey Harvest Festival each year.

I think the Sock Monkey could inspire some writing ideas!
