I found a wonderful photograph album recently. It's full of  dozens of little photographs documenting the lives of a group of friends. They looks so happy as they pose on the beach, feed the ducks in the duck pond and dig the land. I wonder what happened to them after these snapshots were taken. I'm sure they have stories to tell, stories of a whole lifetime. This album of snapshots is like a little window into their world, a glimpse into life in 1940s Britain. As I turn the pages of the album, I look in and imagine what it would be like to be part of that world.

Where do you look to find ideas for your writing?
