Ah, well...Geoffrey rush inspired Captain Alan Silvestri, and after seeing "The Warrior's Way" yesterday, I feel even better I made the right choice! ;-)


Oh! Loved this! I think I spent a perfect hour or so reading this blog...maybe those seamless diversions to the tempting Richard had something to do with it also! :) He is certainly hero worthy inspiration. I may have to borrow him since you are moving on to the next crush. Oh, that's right, you changed your mind. LOL

I should find a real person for inspiration for my hero because I realize my hero for my stories is the nearly the same person physically -- absolutely wonderful, but I might see more differences if I had that visual aid. :)

Maureen, I can see where Geoffrey Rush would be the inspiration. :) I haven't seen "The Warrior's Way", so now I'll have to check that out, so I can do a comparison.

Donna Cummings

Melissa, I'm glad you got to enjoy this treat, especially since you're getting a well-deserved break from school right now!

And we can time-share. :) I'm certain our inspiration works different hours, so that should be a good solution!

I don't generally have a real-person inspiration, so this kind of surprised me. I usually combine personality aspects of the people I find appealing, and they somehow turn into something on the page that intrigues me.

But hey, nothing wrong with visual aids! LOL

I'm listening to this snippet even while I type. Could you imagine that voice whispering in your ear? *sigh*

Sorry, didn't mean to drool on your blog. *wipes up small puddle*

I don't typically find real people that inspire my heroes, but if I did, it would have to be some unknown I found on the net somewhere. I can't use actors as I'd feel like I was writing that person or herhaps a character they've played, instead of writing the person dancing around in my brain.

But as you say, nothing wrong with visual (or audible) aids.

Donna Cummings

*hands Terri a box of tissues*

Wait. I need one of those for myself now. LOL Yeah, I think I might go a little insane if that voice were whispering in my ear. But hey, wouldn't it be worth it? :)

I know exactly what you mean about not using actors. I typically don't either. And in fact, I'm not doing that here--I don't really visualize my hero as RA. But he definitely inspired something inside my brain. :)
