Blogging Challenge - I(inspiration)

"Imagination grows by exercise, and contrary to common belief,
is more powerful in the mature than in the young."
~~W. Somerset Maugham

Since I've been on vacation to Ireland, I was really tempted to make today's post about that, but I've already got pictures I've posted on this blog and have a day by day description on my personal blog.

 But as I've been wandering the streets of various communities and checking out forest trails and assundry ruins, I've been so inspired as far as my writing goes. And this has made me wonder what others are inspired by in their writing. A couple of my WIPs began as memorable dreams (nothing like the nightmares Stephen King must have).

What inspires you?

  1. Good books, sometimes a good movie, traveling. Oh, you are in Ireland. I fell in love with Ireland when I went in 2009 and current WIP takes place there because a voice came and whispered to me. Nice to "meet" you.

  4. Books, movies, tv shows that help my imagination grow. My family and friends. MUSIC. Lots of little random things that happen or that strike me during innocuous moments.

  5. Hmm... music and movies... sometimes it's just a passing thought that evolves during that space between awake and asleep. I love the evolution of an idea. It's one of my favorite parts of writing.

  6. Fantastic post. If I really need inspiration I just hop in my car and go for a drive. For me, it's easy I live 30 minutes from the beach, big city, countryside and a rainforest, so all the areas that would really inspire.

  7. Sunshine, sunrise, sunset, children, animals...I never realized it before, but, I guess I'm quite a romantic at heart. Found you from the A-Z Challenge, I’m now following you on GFC and I hope you have a chance to check out my blog!
