Finding writing inspiration

image2

You have been writing for a little while now and you have had a few great ideas that you’ve been able to turn into full-length pieces. However, you are now trying to come up with your next creation. How can you find some writing inspiration?

There are a lot of different things that inspire people, so there is no magical way to come up with an idea on the spot. However, there are a lot of different things you can do to help the process along a bit.

If you are looking for inspiration, try heading out into the world and taking a really good look at it. There are likely a lot of portions of your daily life that you haven’t thought about too deeply. Something may strike you right away, or it may be a while before a topic comes calling to you.

Keep a writing notebook on hand at all times. This will help you write down ideas, no matter how small, if and when they come to you. This will help you remember them later on, allow you to connect the dots between thoughts you’ve had, and ultimately may be a big help in keeping your ideas organized enough for you to make something out of them.

Take a look at what’s out there. If you are having trouble finding something to write about, take the time to figure out what other people are writing about. This may mean reading a bit outside of your comfort zone to get some new ideas on your mind, but it can be helpful to get you thinking in a different mindset.
