your inspiration?

Postby rhondarightbrainlefty » Mon Dec 19, 2011 6:46 pm

what has been your most random source of inspiration??
I would have to say one of my most interesting moments where I was inspired would be...rushing home (when there was a blizzard advisory), and seeing one or two cars at a restaurant and people sitting down eating in the window. I started thinking how different that person/those people must be from me. And I'm most inspired by people opposite from myself...and that was when I started to developed one of my most complex characters! and I realllllly enjoyed creating him! :) Mine was not all that random. but what I got from it and where I took it was interesting to me.

I would have to say the people I didn't know in High School! I was always the outsider.

how interesting...so you used parts of those people, and parts of what they seemed to be? i love writing about that age. well...i love writing about ages umm...thirteen to twenty? and then it's more difficult for me, (but i still enjoy) the thirties and up...

My most random source of inspiration would be when I was listening to a song I have listened to my entire life and suddenly a story inspired by that song. It surprised me by how sudden it came on. The next probably came from history channel. My inspiration is non-stop so it could come from anything but usually comes from words itself (songs, poetry, TV shows).

For me it's a number of things. Such as music. I listen to a lot of Japanese rock music and most of the bands and singers I listen too inspire me. Reading other books will inspire, people will inspire me, like my friends and stuff..

Songs, dreams, and fantasies.

Two songs have inspired me to created this one short story about a girl finding her way out of her insecurities. Plus I have plenty of other ideas from songs that I'm going to write down.

Plenty of dreams have inspired short stories in the making and some ideas that I have yet to write a story out of.

A couple of fantasies have inspired two novels in the making, which also pretty much suck. Lol. I have to find a way to approach the idea better, because they have potential..., I think.

My most wacky inspiration came from the rock that nearly killed me in third grade.
I was ridding my bike in fall after a heavy rain and when I hit the breaks my bike decided it wasn’t done moving forward and as I was on the bike at the time so did I right into a five pound rock sitting in the middle of the road just waiting for some unsuspecting third grader to run there runaway bike into.
I vividly remember the moments wile I was flying through the air, I felt like a bird or a superhero!
Then I felt like an 84 pound lump of grounds beef.
So bloody and not thinking to clearly I shoved the rock into my backpack and took it home to try and kill it!
I still have it to this day and when I wrote Stone Friend (An as yet unpublished book.) that rock was my main character
