Yelena Black spent a lot of time on YouTube while she was working on her debut novel, Dance of Shadows. She wasn’t procrastinating. She was doing research! Watching videos of famous ballerinas helped to inspire many of the scenes that appear in the final book.
We challenged you to share a video that inspires a piece of your writing, along with a brief explanation of how and why the clip is so influential. We got some great entries (and lost a lot of time on YouTube!) and today, we’re happy to announce the winners!
The winning stories will be featured on the Figment homepage today, Friday, May 17 along with Dance of Shadows. Well done, everyone!
