Do you ever have this great idea pop into your head at the most random moments like when you’re washing your face, walking the dog or waiting in line to go to the restroom?
Inspiration is hard to pinpoint because it comes from a multitude of experiences, images and places. At least that’s where mine stems from. I’m obviously inspired to write about little snippets of my life because of the experiences that I go through on a daily basis, but others are different. They choose to write about love or history or aliens. And they don’t write just small 350-word blog posts. They write novels, series, anthologies; massive volumes that take time, commitment and imagination.
I’ve always wondered where authors find their inspiration behind the literature they write. And not only the inspiration, but the time and the patience to begin a book and eventually finish it. What happens when “writer’s block” shows up? What happens when life gets in the way? What happens when you find yourself getting bored with your own story (which I’m sure happens to some)?
Question of the day: What inspires your creativity?
