"The more difficulties one has to encounter, within and without, the more significant and the higher in inspiration his life will be." ~Horace Bushnell
Inspiration can be like a stimulation or arousal of the mind, feelings, etc, to a special or unusual activity of creativity... such as drawing, painting or writing.
“Enthusiasm is excitement with inspiration, motivation, and a pinch of creativity.” ~ Bo BennettI know I could not write without inspiration. That is why sometimes I write several post one week and only one or two the next. It depends on my 'inspiriation' more than anything else... although time does influence how often I can be on-line.
Some of my post are first hand-written on the back of a receipt or any paper in my purse. Because an 'inspiration' or idea has come to mind or literally 'hit' me. Usually I write what my 'intuition' tells me to, a personal experience or something I just witnessed.
I can not just start writing or typing, making things up as I go. I personally need to be inspired, listening to my intuition, gut or whatever one wants to call it. When I'm in that 'Inspiration Zone' if you will... I have to write about it right then. I feel that this is when I write my most powerful post.
How about you my blogging friends? I'm sure most of you all write from 'inspiration' as well. Do you have to be 'inspired' in order to write? Who or what inspires you? How soon do you need to start writing?
