Since I was confused about which day I was supposed to be blogging (I thought it was next Thursday), today’s entry is a bit last minute.
As I was mulling over possible topics, I got to thinking about the people who inspired me to start writing children’s books in the first place, as well as those who continue to inspire me. And I thought sharing the names of these people might help some other writers and illustrators out there. Or cause them to share some of their own sources of inspiration.
So without further ado, my very random list of 10 creative people who have inspired me, in no particular order:
Chris Van Allsburg
Vincent van Gogh
Is that ten already? I know, I know, there isn’t a non-fiction writer in the bunch, unless you count Douglas Florian. But as they say, inspiration can come from anywhere.
