Guest Post Jeffe Kennedy

Season of Seduction Banner 450 X 169


Recently someone asked me, “Where do you get inspiration for your writing?”

I laughed because a post I’d queued to my Tumblr came up. (http://jeffescloset.tumblr.com/post/64955002381/when-someone-asks-where-my-latest-idea-came-from) Fair warning – there are a lot of explicit and sexy pics on my Tumblr, if you happen to stray off that particular page.


Now, some things I post to Tumblr get no obvious response. In this case, several people shared it –including one of my editors – and replied with various jokes about other sauces. This is funny to us, because it’s not always easy to trace where inspiration comes from.

Really, if you’re doing things right, the ideas just arrive.

I know that sounds like a pat answer, but that’s how it feels. One moment, you’re sitting there with barbeque sauce on your titties and the next, you’re thinking about The Twelve Days of Christmas and how you could fit a different sexytime activity to each day. That’s how being creative works – things go into the brew of my mind and boil around until something interesting pops out.

So there’s two pieces to this: Input and Quiet.

For Input, you just never know what will trigger an idea. I read a lot. I read novels and stories and articles and tweets and blogs. I never read anything that starts to bore me. But I follow intriguing links on Twitter, I read blog posts. I watch movies and listen to music. Anything I’m interested in, I get to indulge in – like a calorie-free banquet for my mind! What’s important is that I choose what it is.

Then there’s Quiet. I’m a big believer in this. Unless you silence the chatter in your brain, you can’t hear the ideas when they arrive. You know this thing where people have TV sets on all the time? Drives me crazy! I actually gave up watching TV about 15 years ago and I’ve never regretted it. While sometimes we’ll watch a series via HBO or Netflix, it’s never live. I don’t watch the news. Anything I do watch, it’s because I planned ahead to do it (see above). It’s not easy at first, learning to live with quiet. I think we often like a lot of noise around us, so we don’t have to hear what’s in our heads – like things that make us unhappy and that we’re not willing to deal with. But, over time, you learn to adjust to the new quiet, like giving up caffeine or whole milk.

Pretty soon, the new level of noise feels better and anything more is just too much. That’s when you are quiet enough to hear the music of the stars.

And the inspiration flows in.

  1. I had to look at this blog post because of the photo that I saw show up in my Feedly stream for your website/blog, Jeffe. I always love hearing what you have to say. :)
