Friday Fortune #9 – Where do you draw your inspiration from?


Friday Fortune #9

Welcome to the ninth edition of Friday Fortune!

What is Friday Fortune? On Wednesdays and Sundays, my posts are generally serious and focus on specific aspects of writing or even life in general. Fridays are here to mix it up a bit. On Fridays, you’ll be surprised with giveaways, free snippets, general questions, and so much more! If you have any suggestions for questions I could ask or things I could do; let me know so we can make this interactive!

This week, I have a question for all of you that I always wonder about, since it’s so different for everyone who does anything artistic.

Where do you draw your inspiration from?

For me, it’s almost everything around me. From nature, snippets of conversations I hear on the street or at the grocery store, at work, at school; there are so many situations that can offer inspiration. A single sentence or even a word can create an idea within the crevices of your mind.

There are other things that give me inspiration. Other books, movies, television shows. There are so many things and it’s astounding how inspirational such simple things can be.

Share your inspirations in the comments! What do you get the most inspiration from? Do you have any stories you could share about things inspiration has granted you?

Let me know!

Tune in next week for whatever I have up my sleeve for you in edition ten of Friday Fortune.

I'm a writer, reader, gamer and a dreamer. I love losing myself to thought and considering possibilities. That is how I create my stories and weave the erratic tales into readable ones.

  1. I get a lot of my inspiration from watching Anime series (I’m a sucker for shows by Clamp!). Also music, often the likes of Linkin Park and SnowPatrol as their lyrics are often quite narrative.

Let me know what you think!
