This morning when I got out, the cool air caught me by surprise, and all I wanted to do was grab a comfy chair and write. The problem is my laptop died last weekend and so now writing will have to be done the old fashioned way. Not that that is a bad thing, and if I'd had time, I would have done just that.
Fall mornings with its crispness, and beauty always inspires me to write. (Proof positive : check out this post from 2008! WRITING PROMPTS ) Don't know if it is the old feeling of going back to school from childhood or what, but I can write like the wind in the glorious days of September and October.
Other things that inspire me to write are good questions. You know the ones I mean, the ones like, do writers write because they have to or do writers write because they have no life? I heard something on television last night that sent me off on a "Oh, I wish I had my laptop" moment.
Television shows are great fodder for inspiration. Especially ones with good what ifs. We, as writers, can always turn a what if into a whole story, and the good thing is, if we all took the same what if we would all have a different outcome.
Isn't being a writer great?
So, what inspires you to write? Where do you get those aha moments from?
