Where do you get your writing ideas from? Is it in your mind, outside sources, or both? Please do share! I love hearing POV from other writers/authors/bloggers!
All I know is, I love that feeling you get, when it's like a lightbulb goes off inside your head and you cannot stop writing for the life of you! Unfortunately, I haven't felt that lately...I wonder if it's because I stopped writing for so long, but I've found some sources that can really help me.
CreativeWritingPrompts.com, also gives over 346 prompts to help you get started! See, I need something like this. I'm usually an extremely creative person, and can come up with millions of fresh ideas, but because I'm trying to force out ideas, I'm all dried up. That's why free-writing has really helped me out lately. I saw that these books can really help, and I just bought them all on my Kindle (low prices too).
I think like I said in my last post, writing takes practice, and you need to do it everyday. Even if tons of ideas aren't flowing into my head right now, I can still write. And hopefully it will then just come to me what I want to do and where I want to take it.
We all know that writing is difficult; no one said it would be easy, but it's what we do. I'm not giving up! That's for darn sure.
I'm actually going to my library today and instead of getting "how-to-write" books, I'm going to get a pile of children's books/YA novels, because I want and am craving IDEAS. I'm probably not going to read all of them, but I'm going to skim over them. And by no means am I "taking or stealing ideas" from other authors, but I'm trying to get inspired.
All I know is, you take it each day as it comes, and I'm thankful for this process. I love waking up each day excited to write and wonder where it will take me for the day.
