I get my best ideas when I’m in the shower or trying to sleep. I’m not really sure why about the first one, but the second is because the night is peaceful.
I love it because no one else is awake and it feels like it can stretch on forever. It’s like night is a whole nother world: one including little pockets of frozen moments. It’s magical the way night feels like anything can happen and everything will be okay. Secrets spoken aloud will stay secret forever when spoken at night. Conversations are softer, sillier and seem to stay there under the warmth of blankets. Ideas feel like fireworks going off and you have to write them now!
Another place where I get my inspiration is from books. Reading some of my favorite author’s works helps me to draw from their style of writing. Writing something baste off a seen or quote is also helpful.
I also draw inspiration from every day life, from conversations around me, cute things my animals do, moments I’ve shared, and just observing those around me. Where do you get your inspiration?
