Inspiration

image one I purchased from Cutcaster

When it comes to the books I've written, the ones I love to read, I am a romantic of the old fashioned sort. Sure sex is fine in them, but it's never the main thing. It's that emotional tugging at the heart and it's the energy that I want to take away from a good read. When I write, I look for the same feelings. My ideas often come from something I've seen or heard.

One of my early stories was about the world of rodeo, 'Luck of the Draw.' Really the luck of the draw is about life as well as the way these cowboys get their rides. I wrote it when I was the age of the heroine; and although I'd been to a lot of rodeos, I can't say I ever knew a rodeo rider that well. I got my inspiration from books, things I'd seen, and imagination as I thought about what would it be like to fall in love with one of these men.

The other day I came across a video which was created for a song about a rodeo man. It pretty well says it all about what it means to be on that circuit, to regularly pit your skills against an animal that isn't interested in making you look good. The song is very romantic. To me, so is the video.




And if rodeo is of interest to you, give the video I created a try also:

I remember when I was so much younger and the rodeo came to town I fantasized about those cowboys. The setting should make a good romance and challenge. I like your video. How did you get so many photos of the same model?

CanStock which is quite reasonable if you buy credits. They have some of them who have put up pages of poses and different outfits. It's one of the challenges of creating trailers though and sometimes I get someone who looks like another and do some photoshop adjusting. Finding the good rodeo shots was even harder as when my hero was riding, the brahmas were bigger looking and the riders didn't wear vests as they do now. Now a lot of photos on bulls have helmets too. Smart but hard to work for a 1974 story..
