Exploring life through writing

What Inspires You to Write?

Ever stopped to think of all the random things that inspire you to write?

I can immediately think of a few that are common for many of us:

  • Music – soft quiet one for those love scenes, heavy-metal for those action scenes
  • Weather – for some it’s rain, while others get excited by a bright sunshine
  • A good book – the feelings it stirs up and how it moves us
  • A movie – same as a book but with sound and visual elements added

But there are other, more subtle reasons that inspire us to write which we don’t realize at times, that come with being human and living among people:

  • A story we heard while in line at the supermarket
  • A wrinkly hand of the mother that reminds us that the time together is limited
  • Sickness of the family pet that brings everyone together
  • A promise you made to a loved one
  • A promise you made to yourself
  • Legacy you want to leave your children
  • Curiosity and wonder
  • A desire to make someone’s life better

The reasons go on and on as are the books that were inspired by them.
