6% electricity, 4% evaporation, and 2% butterscotch ripple... - Mr. Willy Wonka
A friend of mine was recently inspired by a vase her husband gave her for her birthday. I mean, within a day she had a whole synopsis worked out. From the way her vase looked! I asked her what I had to do to get the "writing fairy" to visit me. Knock one of my teeth out and put it under my pillow? Put my laptop under my pillow?!
I've got two WIPs but besides 6 chapters of one and 2 chapters of the other, I'm not making much progress. I don't know if it's because I don't have time, or if I'm lacking inspiration. Maybe it's both. But I sort of feel like if I had inspiration, I'd make time. Right?
What sort of things have you been influenced by? Is it usually inanimate objects? An overheard conversation? Something that just popped into your head for seemingly no reason?
