Last night, I got hit with a wonderful idea to write a story set in Feudal Japan about a retired Samurai and his two sons. Excited, I wrote down the character names and the basic plotline before I went to bed. This morning, I wake up and go to the paper...only to not have that same stroke of inspiration, the excitment isn't there. I just go, "Eh, that sounds cool." and leave. In a span of twelve hours, I go from being excited by this storyline to not caring too much about it. How do I get that inspiration back? Or is that a sign that maybe I didn't really want to write it in the first place? But if that was the case, then why did that idea excite me in the first place?
