Where do you find inspiration to write?

I know inspiration always come from within, from the constant chain of thoughts that are running through our mind but there is always something that must trigger this chain of thoughts. Personally, I love reading inspirational quotes and reading philosophical pieces. I also get motivated to write by listening to classical music. So what about u guys?? :)

Anywhere! For me, what helps a lot is reading, watching a movie, or in some other way absorbing something creative another person has done. THen just let it stew for a while. But ideas can come from anywhere . . . just be open to them. :P

"just be open to them" , that's so true :) I think many of us just have very closed minds and even worse - closed hearts, and that is the exact reasoning that nothing flows.

For me I get inspiration from life. It helps if something out of the ordinary happens, good or bad.

im pretty much the same as you, lol!!! when i write, i get inspiration from anything that catches my eye or im going through personally. all of my writing is mainly based on my thoughts, ideas, and opinions. however, on a more formal side, i do like to write about world/community news.

I base my writing on my life. I base my characters off people I know.
