I love weird news tidbits. They always do a lot to stimulate my imagination.
Today, Digg introduced me to the Environmental Graffiti blog post, “10 Beautiful Yet Deadly Megatropolises.”
There are some odd factoids about the worst cities to live in because of pollution. santitation, overpopulation… the list goes on and on.
The photos I found the most startling were from Cairo. The air quality is so bad there, you can barely see anything.
This photo really fit with some of my ideas for a futuristic urban fantasy. How deadly living can be in a world that is forgotten. (Yes, I know. I relate everything to writing. My friends love me, anyway.)
I think that’s why I axed subscriptions to magazines about writing and started subscribing to magazines that inspired me. Saved me money and provided resources that were much more in tune with the Muse. Now that we have blogs, I find myself surfing endlessly for ideas and inspiration – sometimes to the detriment of the writing itself.0
