Where do you guys mainly get your inspiration?

Do you draw it from those around you, from nature, from the stupidity of others, from depression, from religion? Movies, Books?

Mostly, I get any inspiration from my haphazardous trains of thoughts where I'll be bestowed with an amazing thought or image that I'll elaborate on. Other times I get inspiration from listening to my friends and picking up ideas from our general conversation. And of course, movies, books, and games offer to inspire me especially after getting a heavy dosage of it.

What about you guys?

Ya, pretty much the same for me. I'll admit, many of my ideas are, to put is simply...are stolen. I'll take a simple concept, and change it to fit my style. Like my newest sim battle character, Jeremiah. I got the idea from LOST. There is this big black guy, who carries around a club on which he carves scriptures from the bible. Thats what my character does, except he has powers.

I also get ideas from just an image or thought. I'll see a cool picture online or something, and I'll make up what I think it is.

Depends on what you mean. With my writing, I usually get a small outline for a plot into my head. I thne proceed to write it down, and start thinking of possible plot twists, subplots, ect.

For my simbattle characters, it all depends. Alex was an obvious one for me, as my family is very much into psychic and energy control powers. Z-35 was also obvious, as he is mostly the opposite of Alex, with more technology. Then there only reamins Jaques, who I actually got from a scottish myth about a man who bathed in the blood of the dragon, gaining much of the dragon's abilities.

With anything else, it just comes into my head.

I truly believe that inspiration is one of the greatest assets of this world. I recieve my inspiration from the people around me, the books I read, but mostly nature and the earth itself. There are so many great things that I use to shape who I am. That's what life is really about. Taking what you love and turning it into who you are.

I get my inspiration mainly from music.

There's a script that I wrote that's based on a song.

Aside from that, popular culture, and the people I know are big sources of inspiration for me.

Mostly religion. It keeps me going.

But witnessing the beauty of nature... Fews things produces a drive like that to me.

A good book produces initiative, too.

One inspiration I will not mention, Lets just say im going to be more sucessful the working man's way rather than get Yelled at and shot at.

Kyla is my main inspiration, were not only best friends, but in a sence, we need each other, im more outgoing with her, shes more outgoing, Im more active, shes more active.....And plus shes my....Well im not going that far just yet

My father, Why do I look up to him after all hes done? Because I want him to be proud that his son diddnt walk down the same road he did.

My mom, Im gonna take care of her when shes older.

My Friends, Neil, Naruto, Trigger happy, and the others. Without them, I wouldent be here in Georgia.

My old friend to whom I hate. I dont have a reason, I just like to laugh at them, and I really dont care if they laugh at me. They're retarded

Benjaman Gibson, My smoking buddy and gamer buddy. I love his family too for the reason because they help take care of my mom, and plus his family love me to death.

My memories. My memories are my inspiration. When I remember the bad things, then those memories are my inspiration to go on. Not much to say about that. good memories...

I am only 18 years old. So all of my memories are from childhood and adolescence. Therefore, they're not all that sophisticated most of the time. When you're a child, everything's so simple. My good memories from being little, when I think about them now, it was those simple things in life that mattered. Therefore, my memories inspire me to keep that in mind and live by that theory to the best of my ability.

They're what keep me memories of George...though sometimes it's painful to remember him because he was essentially my father, and now he's in dead, not as in broken up with my mom or something like that. So it hurts sometimes to remember some things and know that I can never put my hands on those moments again. From there, that's where I usually pull my creative side though. I don't know how mind just starts running on things I can do with it....things I can draw...or write...

Meh...I'll shut up now. I'll prolly just go on and on another time.

In other words you steal our material?

My inspiration comes from my goal to to fix this messed up universe we live in in some way whether it comes out to be insignificant or even forgotten. Im not trying to be remembered I just want to slow the speed at which this planet approches
doom day. If at all possible...

My inspiration comes from various places. Books, music, folklore, random objects, memories, dreams, and people. Sometimes shit just comes into my head and I write it until it is done. Emotion drives me pretty hard I've noticed, I'll want to write something that conveys a certain emotion and the story weaves itself... that was what happened with Shattered Memories.

conversations where people mention one idea and it sparks off a dozen others

pain (not arm stabby stabby, but the overcoming of hardship and the struggle to survive and be happy)

sweet sweet uranium!

I'll pull an inspiration from almost anywhere. It's usually a conversation about something, then what I think would be cool to happen in a story, then creating a backstory for both characters, then making up an appearance, giving the characters different qualities, and finally a personality for thos characters.

All taken care of while writing what I'm going to do.
