For discussing random things off the top of your head!

Where do you guys get your inspiration for writing/drawing? Personally I have difficulty moving my pen unless I see something so beautiful/touching that I can't help but try to put it in words. Sometimes I listen to music depending on the scenes I'm trying to write. Occasionally reading light novels also help a lot!

aww, i find inspiration in the little things. I might have read a book and really like the way they worded a particular scene. or walked passed a certain place and thought "ooooh wow, imagine if there was a fight scene here!" i write it all down as it comes, even if its only like 2 or 3 sentences, sometimes just a word. that way i can flip through my passed stuff and it's all in there to go through and help kill the writer's block :)

i'm really hungry.

I like doing a bit of both of those methods. Sometimes I'll listen to a good song and see the scenes play out, imagining it going along with the song. Other times I'll get inspiration from some anime or movie I watch and it gets me thinking about what I'd like to do if I had a series in such a way.

ah, im supposed to be going back to my parents' house for dinner soon. its 5pm.. ill go soon enough i know what they are, but i can't say ive ever really consciously used them in my writing before.

A tip:
Keep a book or folder of stuff that inspires you. If it catches your eye, or you relate to it, get it into that folder/collection/book etc., that way you've always got something to turn to when you need a bit of inspiration :)

I have folders on my computer, on my phone, and a few journals as well that i use Things like songs, pics, places, quotes, people... inspiration is everywhere :P

I sometimes do. It can really help. That and I can usually never say no to food

I usually go without eating for long durations but when social events come up I totes splurge. I went to this thing called the night market yesterday and had... a potato, a corn on a stick, some fried rice, some squid skewer, okonomiyaki, a ramen burger, and a lobster. I scared some of my friends because they know I usually don't eat

While writing though, I really enjoy tea.

As long as you enjoy it, it'll always help And those sound rather nice, and also healthy too. I haven't had tea before, I'm more a coffee kinda person. But having a good song, a good drink of coffee, and some nice snacks, that's how I like to do things. I am interested in the ramen burger, didn't know those existed.

lol the consistency of the noodles is kind of weird. Imagine eating a hamburger patty sandwiched between two layers of flavorless sour straws and you have the ramen burger...

I discovered something today. If I type with my eyes closed I can actually write better i think.

Also, what kind of music do you guys listen to while trying to create stuff?

I like to listen to Breaking Benjamin, Ashes Remain, and some 2 Steps From Hell (a symphonic band that does songs for movies sometimes)They can sometimes help me with writing.

Hmm interesting choices. That's interesting Cai. I don't think I could ever do anything creative if my music had lyrics in it. Those are some pretty neat songs though.
