Art and music provide ample opportunities to get inspired due to the stories they hold. Sometimes, looking at art pieces and listening to soulful music can be enough to get that hit of inspiration.
Routine can be frustrating, and to escape it, sometimes our minds wander off to different things until a train of thought is formed. It’s in these quiet moments of thinking that we often find something worth writing about. Just don’t forget to jot them down so you don’t forget them!
Historical events likewise offer many opportunities for inspiration. On top of that, getting acquainted with historical events with the help of reliable sources help ground us to reality and deepen our understanding of reality, and our own roots.
Books & Movies
Sometimes the best way to escape your own story for a while is to enter another with its own complex workings. This way, we can come back to our creative process with a wider understanding of what will work or what won’t.
Reading books and watching movies are definitely among the best ways to get inspired and come back to your own writing with renewed vigor.
BONUS: Another way to get inspired is to simply write. Practicing freewriting by keeping a notebook for your thoughts is also a great way to release tension and gain clarity. It’s meditative and can help you sort out your thoughts so that you can write better.
