Inspiration is borne out of thought. You may need the inspiration to finish your story or to find something to start with, but you can’t find that inspiration if you’re not thinking about your work. You have to stay on top of your writing, especially when you’re not writing.

What inspired you to start writing?
A desire to teach people things can be a strong motivator when it comes to writing. You may have an expert knowledge of something that you know would be useful to share with others, or perhaps you want to write a book that changes the way people see the world, inspires them to act or just makes them feel understood.
How is inspiration created?
First, inspiration is evoked spontaneously without intention. Finally, inspiration involves approach motivation, in which the individual strives to transmit, express, or actualize a new idea or vision. According to Thrash and Elliot, inspiration involves both being inspired by something and acting on that inspiration.
Can you write without inspiration?
So, here’s an exercise: during one of your uninspired times, sit down and force yourself to write. But it’s actually quite possible that you’ll find that the scene you forced is fine, that you can write at a good quality even without inspiration.
How does inspiration contribute to creative writing?
1. Inspiration transforms us from creative readers to creative writers. You’re reading a book by one of your favorite authors, and all of a sudden the top of your head and your fingertips start to tingle; you grab a pen and begin scribbling away. Inspiration turns reading into creative reading.
How did we learn to write?
Most writers, of course, learned to write in school —the teacher stuck a pencil in their hand and showed them how to form the letters. Another teacher later on taught them about words and sentences and parts of speech and punctuation.
How do you get your writing out there?
Things You Should Try
- Going to a writer’s festival.
- Starting a blog or website.
- Sharing your work and accomplishments on social media.
- Getting together with writer friends (and actually talk about writing).
- Reading books and writing reviews.
How do you get in the mood of writing?
6 Tips on how to get into the writing mood
- Start off easy.
- Create your ideal writing space.
- Listen to music or embrace the silence.
- Set yourself writing goals and reward yourself for accomplishing them.
- Think about your mission.
- Supply yourself with inspiration.

Does creativity come from inspiration?
A number of studies indicates that inspiration is a robust predictor of creativity. At the between-person (i.e., trait) level, inspiration and creative self-concept are positively correlated, and inspiration predicts longitudinal increases in creative self-concept (Thrash and Elliot, 2003).
Can inspiration come from within?
It comes from within. Inspiration is a powerful force, and inspired action is one of the most powerful ways to motivate yourself. Carrots and sticks are usually external forms of motivation. Instead, if you inspire yourself, you light your fire from the inside out.
Where do you find inspiration?
Yoga and meditation. This is a way in which we tune out the distractions of the outside world, and clear our mind to make space for inspiration and possibilities.
