Novel in the works

Sparked by NANOWRIMO and four words chosen by my two sons, I have been working on a novel. I sometimes fall down a rabbit hole when I research information. I find the story I am writing to be incredibly inspiring and all consuming. My many novelist friends tell me this is a novel that MUST BE WRITTEN!

I'm not going to tell you what the story entails, not yet anyway. But below are a few images that have something to do with my story.

My inspirations

I guess I am inspired by the question 'what if?' 
After the question is asked, I then try to prove (at least to myself) that the 'what if' actually happened, OR, could happen... is it possible, or even believable? I like reading books that make me sit back and wonder, and if they make me reach for encyclopedic information all the better. I also see writing as a sculptural form. To me the story and words within are like a big block of clay, you take some from here, add some there, push it this way, mold it into something extravagant or simple...
