I am pretty sure that every writer at some point fails to find inspiration. I know I have, at least. I’m going to list a few ways I usually find inspiration when I’m completely out. Hopefully some of it is helpful!
1 – Go for a walk – To the park, a forest, a beach or wherever you happen to want to go!
2 – Re-watch a movie you absolutely love, with characters you care about.
3 – Listen to music that makes you dream.
4 – Walk in the rain, dance in the rain, or simply listen to it.
5 – If you hate rain – Bask in the sun.
6 – Re-read a favorite book.
7 – Go to a coffee shop and people-watch. (Not meant to sound creepy.)
8 – Take a nap and while falling asleep, think about your writing/story/characters.
9 – Go outside and take pictures of random things.
10 – Go to a bookstore, be it a used bookstore or a new one. Walk through the aisles and look at the books.
These are all things that help me find inspiration. I don’t know if any of it is at all helpful, but there you have it!
