Finding Inspiration

Just a short list of things that inspire me or actions that get my creative juices flowing:

  • Sitting through a Creative Writing class
  • Sylvia Plath
  • Copying all my poems from word documents onto paper by hand
  • Taking a hot shower
  • Death Cab for Cutie
  • the smell of ink 
  • Challenges--such as writing in 2nd person, only dialogue, present tense, etc.
  • Flipping through a Dictionary or Thesaurus
  • Writing at night
  • Iced tea, pajamas, and a messy ponytail
  • Reading past journal entries
  • Classical music
Umm...yeah, that's all I've got.
