Inspiration is a mysterious thing. What I mean here is the starting point. How a story begins. Sometimes it’s a character and his/her voice. Other times it’s a situation and thinking about how someone might respond. Or a relationship. It might start with an image. A setting. And then the mind starts to wander.
Soon after, Inspiration’s cousin, Insight, has to kick in and start making sense within the white hot mess of creation.
And then the story might start again. And again. And again. And then it could become hard to pinpoint the exact moment of inspiration.
Which is where I am with my new thing.
(One) of my current Inspirations or Insights has to do with maps. Which is one reason I love this music video that a friend sent me. It’s a story, but there are plenty of holes. Plenty of room for you to make it your own. Be Inspired!
