Inspiration plays a big role in the process of writing, and every writer is looking for that fleeting moment of insight, or a bright flash of revelation to get inspired and create his or her magnum opus. There is two ways to get inspired: one is to sit leisurely and wait for that fleeting moment that occurs once in a life time for a common man, or to actively search for inspiration. This post will talk about the places where you can look for inspiration.
There is much more to this world then writing, writing techniques, and grammar. Learn music, read history, admire art, visit art galleries, touch a sculpture, or see people dance. These art forms entertain you and fill you with energy to write and think. Isn’t it inspiration? If not then let me tell you nothing is.
Everyone who makes a podcast is not a jerk. I know you always secretly believed it. There are quite a many brilliant people in this industry. Listen to at least one of them, and do it regularly. Your mind will never cease to be amazed on the quality of ideas you will get.
Yes, this time the inspiration will come from within you. Writing a journal will help you find things from your own life on which you can write. Everyone is a story, and as a writer you are an anthology, so look no further.
Feeling is at the root of stories that we write, therefore, having a journal of feelings will help you write well. While writing down feelings, also write the occasion and reason, these will help you understand the feeling and context when you come back to the journal.
This is another place where you did not look when you were searching for inspiration. That slimy thing between your ears is very powerful, make use of it. Write down all the brief or long thoughts that come to you, and come back to the list every week. This will help you a lot in finding the writing ideas.
