Inspiration Like Bruce Lee Kicking Me in the Balls

How the bloody hell does inspiration form?

I know when I write it’s after either reading a novel, watching a movie, playing a video game, or simply torching ants on the driveway. I had a three week spurt of inspiration a few weeks ago and now, I’m just farting ideas in small episodes. Occasionally, I’ll have that large, loud, and explosive idea. Then, the rest are silent little toots.

I want to get to that place again in my head, but I’m too damn stubborn to latch my butt to my chair and write. Maybe I should add some cushion to it cause when I do other things I’m usually comfortable. In my office, my chair feels like I’m getting elephant humped on an hourly basis.

So what gives you guys inspiration?

  1. Sometimes I’m inspired by movies or books as well, and even music. But a lot of the things that I write are inspired by events or or real-life conversations I’ve had. I have journals going all the way back to when I was a child. Some of entries written were in enough detail that sometimes it brings it all back to my mind like a movie, and I just get inspired to tell the story. I also have very vivid dreams which would make for great sci-fi stories, but I’ve never tried it. I used to write my dreams down but I nowadays I only do it if the dream lingers with me throughout the day.

  2. I usually can’t afford to wait for inspiration to pop up. I will just start typing and see what happens or use a prompt like taking three random words from the newspaper.

    When I do enjoy inspiration it comes from reading something good, or seeing a good performer, after a good conversation with someone.
