Creative types know the feeling of being overwhelmed by an idea. It bounces around in your mind until it takes full form and you might just explode if you don`t express it. If you don`t write it, draw it, sing it, or play it, a part of you dies. You do it because you need to.
When you`re a writer, pretty much anything can inspire you. People, relationships, emotions, music, movies, photographs, fashion, the weather, the landscape, etc. I am inspired by things everyday. When you take an inspiration and it becomes an idea, a story starts to form. Even if no one will ever read it or like it, I write it down anyway. Because that is what I need to do. You can go wherever you want to go and do whatever you want to do through your characters. It`s so cool.
I can`t even think about what it would be like if I didn`t write.
Writers, why do you write?
