Inspiration

To be honest, I had no idea what to write for this blog post. So, I have decided to write a post about none other than… inspiration.

For those of you who don’t know, I like to consider myself a writer. It always amazes me what tiny little things inspire me. For example, about two years ago, I did a tedious exercise where I wrote down 15 first sentences, randomly. I tried to write a story from them, but to no avail. Then, when I looked back at them a year later, one stuck out to me. That one little sentence was a springboard for me to invent an entire world (which I am now trying to write down).

The most interesting thing about inspiration is that if I had shown that sentence to any other person, they would have come up with a completely different story.

Inspiration can be frustrating, too, at least to me. It never comes when I want it to. When I’m stuck on page 3 and need to figure out what happens after the lunchroom incident, my mind goes blank. It’s only when I’m walking down the street, thinking about what kind of cheese to get on my sandwich, that it hits me.
