Favorite Inspirations?

Isn't it wonderful when you don't "need" inspiration? When writing comes like summer breeze on a hot day, the world is a sweet place.

What about the times you would rather have a root canal than write? When inspiration is miles away and left you standing in the middle of no where. Your muse flew the coup with your creativity and she laughed at you the whole time you were pleading for her stay.

Those days cal for desperation, don't they? Or do they? Hmmmm.... Yes, I guess they do.

What do you do? Where do your ideas come from? How do you capture your muse and make her talk? Make her write.

Is it art?
Music?
Books?
Friends?
Movies?

What?

EXCUSE THE MESS HERE. What inspires me is finding a new template! I'm searching for one now so if things look mismatched or out of place, it's because I am experimenting!!

How about a few pictures?
Check out these lovely photos: Very unique and inspiring!

  1. I can definitely relate to this post. I am at the root canal point right now. I know I need to write, but inspiration is fleeting. Sometimes music inspires me, or just some really irrelevant thing that happens in my life. Thank you so much for stopping by and following my blog. It is wonderful meeting you too.

  4. I think making regular appointments with your Muse makes her/him more likely to show up when called, and once that habit's been established, it's like muscle memory; you can go a bit without meeting up and then when you call on Muse again, it's like y'all were never apart. It's a theory, anyway. :-)

    1. Hey, my muse doesn't like regular appointments. She is stubborn and haughty and loves to give me hard time. But when she feels like talking, she is awesome:)

  5. Strangely, the acknowledgements in books always inspire me to write.

  6. Photos inspire me, too, but usually, I'm most inspired by music. Songs evoke emotions in me in a way nothing else can. Maybe it's also because in high school, my favorite songs were like religion and the singers were preachers, telling me how to live and feel and love. I always felt like the music understood me when no one else did when I was a kid - maybe the memory of that feeling is what inspires me to write.

    1. That is so true! Tonight as I watched a movie, the music was so inspiring I got an idea for a story. It's just an idea, but it was the music that inspired me!
      Thanks for stopping by, Daisy:)
