It is said that “art begets art.”
As a short story writer, I find that to be so true.
I find great inspiration in listening to great classical music. Composers, after all, are writers employing musical notation. They translate words into sonic stimulation.
Today, I would like to introduce you to another kind of amazing artist, my StumbleUpon friend, Bill M. Tracer.
Bill is not only a visually creative genius but he is also an accomplished writer.
Friends, meet Bill:
Bill M. Tracer is a freelance computer graphic artist, and science fiction / fantasy / paranormal writer, living in Cordova , TN , USA . Regarding his art, he works with a variety of digital computer graphic software on a PC, ranging from 3D illustration, to cosmic and spiritual abstraction, to fractal geometric generation. Among other places you’ll find his art on-line are his gallery Web site located at: http://billmtracerstudio.50megs.com/ , a DeviantART Gallery at: http://billmtracer.deviantart.com/gallery/ , and Picable http://www.picable.com/photographers/Bill%20M.%20Tracer.13377/recent . Just click thumbnail to enlarge to full size.

With his permission, I have chosen to spotlight three of Bill’s outstanding copyrighted art works below for your enjoyment.
Study these works.
And then conjure up your award-winning short story entry for the LongShortStories Short Story Contest. You, too, will find that art begets art!

See what I mean when I say “art begets art!”
Thank you, Bill, for sharing your world with ours.
You have “the gift,” my friend!
