Inspiration


I is for Inspiration

According to the opening lyrics of one of my favourite  Quartet songs "Inspiration doesn't simply appear, it must have a spark, a chance to come clear and light up into view."  So take a moment now to consider what inspires you:

Something beautiful?












Acting silly?

Activity?













Reconnecting with someone?













Trying something new?










Having a little alone time?


Breaking out of your routine?


For me, I find listening to music inspiring.   My all time personal favourite inspirational song is "I Got a Name" by Jim Croce


If that one doesn't do it for you, the Goal Setting College has compiled an awesome list of 40 inspirations songs - you might find one you like here.

Do whatever works for you.  Get inspired!

  1. My inspiration for my novels comes from many different sources - often totally unexpected. Something about a scene, a chance meeting, something I hear or read - all have provided inspiration for me.

  2. Great post about inspiration. What inspires me varies and never seems to be the same.

    1. I find that one song inspiring, though it never inspires me in the same way twice.

  3. While writing this book I have to listen to dark classical music to get in that mindset.

  7. Inspiration comes to me in many ways and from some of the most unexpected sources, but one thing that always inspires me is a well written piece. I'm inspired now.

  8. I have to say, pictures like number one really inspire me. Seeing a beautiful sunset over the sea makes me feel connected and definitely inspired. :)

    1. Poetry and landscape seem to go to hand-in-hand in my mind... perhaps landscape is natures poetry....

  9. Weird things spark inspiration for me. A whisper of a memory, a few words that take me in an unexpected direction, emotion that washes over me, or just a quirky thought that pops into my head and I rush to jot it down before it drifts away.

  12. "I Can See Clearly Now" and "I Will Survive" are favorites of mine. I also find a lot of classical music inspiring. Of your choices, beauty and alone time are probably tops on my list. Thanks for an inspiring post.

    1. It's interesting how, instead of running out of inspiration, the more you access it the more there seems to be.
