I apologize in advance for the cell phone quality of these pictures.
First up, the line "On Monday it rained", on orange post-it note, on a yellow legal pad. I could think of worse opening lines to a story, n'est-ce pas? I haven't written this one yet, but it's up there, in the stew of my subconscious.
This one makes me think of the anime Fooly Cooly, wherein "Eyebrows" was a running joke for the latter half of the extremely brief series.
And lastly, date due cards, but with...quotes? Proverbs? Whatever. Written on them. These aren't the first I've found like this. I assume they will not be the last.
Have you ever taken inspiration, for a character or a specific line or a situation, from an object that you found?
