I thought this was big enough to have it's own forum as the things that inspire us are ever changing.
Here you can share what inspires you most at the moment, and share it with the rest of the group!

When I write poetry, I listen to Classical, Latin, Violin, Piano, or a combo of the aforementioned. It allows me to flow with the music, while my hand flows with the words.

As for Inspiration, I find it more difficult to find the right words to detail my inspirations, rather than to find the inspiration itself.

I have a very creative mind personally, but it's also a bit of a perfectionist. I dislike using the same word or words too many times, or the same string or flow for too long. I like there to be a change in direction much like the actual feeling that I am writing about.

For example, anger is not just all red lights and charging like a bull, there is also calm and collected anger, and bottled anger ect.
Each type of variation in a feeling has a different impact, and a different meaning.

Inspiration is easy if you see life this way.

For example:

Winter - Snowflake - Sadness - This is a perfect lineup for a deeper meaning piece of art with a touching or depressing tale.

Winter - Snowflake - Anger - A murder or crime in the mountains...

Winter - Snowflake - Happiness - A lighthearted story with a possible protagonist and antagonist situation, perhaps something touching, like a story about animals?

As you can see from above, by playing with the actual mood of something, you can change the entire point of inspiration from story to story, and those are just simple examples.

Perhaps the above only works for me, and I am just weird though.. I'm cool with that too.

Challenges

Life, people, events, places, times..
These things and more, have been putting me down, kicking me in the face, and spitting at my feet..
For as long as I can remember, I have been faced with challenge after challenge, not having a mother, having an abusive stepmother, having social quirks, being cheated on, lied to and hurt, having my heart broken, having my body bashed, having my mind toyed with.. just some of the many challenges I have overcome.
Aye, it's been hard, my heart turning black with anger while my face hides it all behind a smile, but that's not what's important. No what's important is that, over time, I've lost that broken black heart, and though I've lost it, I've gained something else. I've gained strength. I don't know if I believe that everything happens for a reason, if that were true then whatever task I'm to forego must be some deep excruciatingly painful shit, but I do believe it doesn't matter, because no matter what, I have my friends, my family, and I have my strength..
Those who have hurt me, oppressed me, and kicked me while I was down, those who challenged me, and those who who have toyed with my heart, my mind, and my soul I have two things for you:
My forgiveness, because you aren't worth my anger, and because your soul and minds are pitiful.
My thanks, my gratitude, and my sincere appreciation, because you unwittingly and unknowingly created me to be stronger than you could ever hope to be.
