Writing inspiration found on Facebook

1394797_401930539933130_711599385_nFacebook is the most known social media site out there these days.  Just about everyone has an account for the site and many businesses have pages.  There are so many things to “like” that you could waste an entire day just looking at the memes your friends repost, or the status updates, playing the myriad of games, or even “poking” people.  But, have you ever thought about the possibility that you might find inspiration to write on Facebook?

Until recently, I would have never imagined that being on Facebook could give me any inspiration to write, at least my novel writing.  However, that has changed in the last week with a new page I found thanks to a friend of mine.  It is called Earth Porn and the pictures posted that will take your breath away, they are that stunning.

Check out the page and tell me if you agree.
