Inspiration comes from a variety of places. Sometimes it’s a conversation you’ve had, a story you’ve read, or just something you’ve seen. It’s what keeps you writing regardless of time, location or deadline. It’s what drives you to seclude yourself from the world and away to a place where nothing else matters but the completion of your thoughts.
See if you can identify something that inspires your writing. Pay attention to the moments that forces you to sit and write. You’ll need to be able to reference these motivators when facing a potential writer’s block. Writer’s blocks are real and being able to draw from what gets your creative juices flowing is essential in the completion of a project.
So, what inspires you to write? Is it random conversation? Is it observering your surroundings and feeding off the energy? Is it being secluded and away from the noise of a busy life? When do you write most? On breaks at work? During vacation? Or whenever the mood hits you?
I tend to write late nights for hours on end and am usually inspired by something I’ve seen, heard or experienced. I remember writing an entire poem on napkins, while in between classes on my college campus based on a personal experience with a friend. I learned over time that the majority of my writings are motivated by personal experiences and sometimes random moments. I feed off the energy around me and use it in my writing.
If you pay close enough attention, you’ll find there’s more than one inspiration. Before long, you will have compiled a list of them and will be able to go to one or more to aid in your writing.
