According to the Encarta English Dictionary of North America, inspiration is:
“Stimulation to do creative work. Stimulation for the human mind to creative thought or to the making of art” (found on the Microsoft Word Encarta Dictionary, November, 2011).
From the books I’ve read and my own experiences, finding what inspires can certainly help creativity percolate and begin brewing inside the writer.
But, what inspires you? What is something that when you see it, touch it, smell it, taste it, hear it, words or pictures automatically begin playing inside your mind? If you can’t think of anything, now would be a great time to begin allowing your senses to find what inspires you!
