“You never have to change anything you got up in the middle of the night to write.”
― Saul Bellow
In my own words – inspiration starts when magic happens.
How do we get inspired?
I would say it’s a gift from God. Switch off from reality you live in and switch on to another mode of thinking where existing rules and laws are invalid, where the imagination creates the limits of your world.
Such a noble gift!
There are plenty of things around you that can inspire – the morning rain, the sunshine, the rainbow, the smile of a stranger, even an angry look as long as it provokes emotions inside of you. It’s not about a single thought, it’s about the story behind the thought and the inevitable need to share it with the world.
Powerful thought is contagious to unforeseeable extent; Touches where rarely ever can; Produces a magical circle of good feelings and positive energy that no one would resist, no one even can.
And that is the most precious reward for a writer!
