TOPIC: Where do you get your inspiration?

Where do you get your inspiration? 7 years 7 months ago #5

In the shower? On long drives? With tips from TV? On the job? Working with others? What really gets your creative juices going?

It occurs from time to time, don't know where from and you don't know how to get it you haven't got it where to get it. Maybe it's just inside you, waiting to pop out at the right moment. Inspiration is a funny thing.

I don't think there's a set process by which I find inspiration but if I had to choose I'd say borrowed ideas, research, people's requirements and customer suggestions. I try to listen very carefully to what my customers need.

I'm a writer, and sometimes I get inspiration from overheard dialog. If I’m anywhere public, whether it be at a park or a mall or my workplace, sometimes I’ll eavesdrop on people. Not in a gross way or anything, but I’ll just keep quiet, and listen.

I love hearing other people have conversations. Sometimes it doesn’t happen on purpose — you can’t help but overhear people sometimes. When I happen to overhear a snippet of interesting dialog, I'll jot it down in my writing journal as soon as possible. It can serve as a model or inspiration for later writing.

Magazines. Good magazines aren’t always filled with great writing, but you can usually find one good piece of information, or a great story with the ability to pull you along to the end. These pieces inspire me.

Even bad magazines, while perhaps not the best models for writing, can still be inspirations for ideas. Sometimes I find interesting angles to attract an audience to my work.

Yea - and movies. Sometimes, while watching a movie, a character will get me thinking, “wow! That's definitely a new perspective.” Besides stimulating story lines, sometimes I get inspired by the incredible camera work, the way that a face is framed by the camera, the beauty of the landscape captured on film.
