For an author, inspiration is pretty much everywhere. I am one of those authors who usually acts on impulse toward inspiration. For some reason, yesterday I was struck by a sight not often seen. An African American woman was striding down a busy street, scarf wrapped around her head in a very cultural way, pulling a wheeled bag such as one carries when going on a trip. All of these things sent a chill down my back, and the determined look on her face only cemented for me that there was a story to be told in this strange sight.
