It’s funny the way inspiration strikes. Sometimes it’s just a word I hear or see in print. One word. It’s enough to snowball into a story or poem, or something totally different. Like this post!
The past week or so I’ve struggled to find writing inspiration. But when it happens… Bang!
Some of my best pieces have come from, what I would say is “instant” inspiration. It’s like the piece is ALL there, all at once, in my head. All I need to do is type it out. These are few & far between. But when they come it’s like lightening. A flash. I start typing and most of the time it only takes a few minutes.
These pieces are an adrenaline rush! It’s great!
When I’m done, most of the time, I will sit there and scrutinize the piece. I’m hesitant to post it. I think, “It can’t be any good! It only took me 5 minutes to write that!”
These have ended up being some of my best pieces. They get the most positive comments and people reblog them more. It’s just crazy.
I just wish that lightening would strike more often!
