FYI - Hey everyone! I wanted to say real quick that give my busy schedule I will now only be posting a new #TheWritersCorner once a month on the first Friday of that month. Should you have any ideas or suggestions for posts please feel free to leave a comment or write a comment on my Instagram post! Thank you! xo
For this weeks post, I wanted to get into the topic of how I come to find my inspiration. As I have a feeling I’ll be referencing it from time to time it seemed fitting to have a post on it now.
I was always the one that would hear others talk about their inspiration as something that comes from everywhere, and truth be told, they were right. Inspiration for me comes from a variety of things. It can be as simple as having read a book or watched a TV series or movie and my imagination is kicked into gear. Sometimes something as small as wondering what would have happened to the characters had they not taken the one path they were on is all it takes.
Now, there are times all this results in is only a scene and nothing else but it was still prove valuable when I’m working on a new project and I need it for later on.
Sometimes I can be going for a walk, listening to music, or even cleaning around the house and because I’m not overtly focused on anything my mind wanders about. Having always been the child with an overactive imagination you can understand that having a million thoughts at a time is nothing new to me. Only this time, I can work on them, build them into a story that will one day grace the pages and become a book.
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t have ideas for every possible outcome when it comes to a potential story, but my imagination has a way of giving me a good starting point that I can build on over time. But only if the story really grasps my attention. I’m sure that many writers can sympathize that a story is only as good as the willingness we have to write it. I need to have a story that has truly captured my heart and attention. This way I know that I will give it my all and make it into the story that it was always meant to be.
All the best,
