Fave Photos: #onthetrail with Sloan

In the past year and a half, my wife and I have become obsessed with trail hiking. It’s a peaceful, quite time for us to rest our minds, take in the beauty of nature, and even have important life chats when we’re in the mood to discuss something that’s been on our minds. Being out more often in nature has also boosted my creativity and productivity. I can’t recommend it enough for writers or other creative types. It’s a wonderful way to fill your creative well.

Here are some of my fave photos from our trail journeys, in no particular order:

I love seeing deer.

One of my favorite trails.

Story Inspiration: It’s all in the embrace

There’s a great story in this picture. It has me wondering… Are they friends? Lovers? Is this a first date? Is it their first embrace? Were they just arguing? Laughing? Are they falling in love? Do their families not approve of their relationship? Did they just get engaged? Decide to have a child? Move in together?

I love the way these kinds of visuals always lead me to a story idea (or loads of ideas!).
