    I wanna write!! D=

    Discussion in 'General Writing' started by Alice in Wonderland, May 17, 2007.

    I haven't written anything for a long while. D= I need something to write about, anything at all. I don't feel like writing a comedy piece to don't suggest that.

    I emplore you, people of WF.org, to give me some inspiration for a short piece!

    Go! =D

    just look around you!... inspiration for writing is everywhere... turn on the tv news... pick up a newspaper or magazine... go to a mall... roam downtown... get out in the open countryside... or just take a walk around the block...

    and whatever you do, wherever you go, be sure to take a note pad and pen!

    love and hugs, maia

    [now, was that either 'harsh' or 'rude'? ;-) ]

    Listen to a Queen song and write a story about it.
    Always, always works, but the results tend to be creepy.

    Maia, It was neither! =D It's twenty to midnight and I live in London. I wouldn't ever consider going out under these circumstances. xD I will, however, invest in a notepad and pen. =D

    Crazy Ivan, I have no music available. =( But I can see why the results of your suggestion would be creepy. xD I'll have to try that one day.

    The parts of your soul you refuse to recognize.
    Do a fight scene between super heroes you just made up.

    Write a conversation about 2 people discussing some one's suicide, but have the narrator be the guy who died.

    Write a short story about a human who kills elves to prove they aren't Superior.

    All Ideas I plan to get around to.

    Non-fiction or something with a basis of truth? Then maybe read the newspaper... I know, I know, yawn! But hey, reading a book, watching the news on t.v, shows, listening to music... all these inspire me. Maybe give it a go.. just remember to write some of it down so you don't forget it!

    Fiction with a realistic flair. Something that could actually happen so the reader can connect with it. I'd like to be a little controversial but I don't really want to upset anyone. xD I have a vague idea of what I want to writing about but it's a secret! HA!

    I was in the same boat Alice....until my neice came up to me whilst I was planting bulbs and started when it began....The INFAMOUS WHY QUESTIONS that carried on forever, seriously they went on for the rest of the day which was like 5 hours and boy did I get sick of explaining the way the world is and the reasons for it too....but it inspired a hilarious fast fiction piece that is for sure.
    Inspirations everywhere, ya just gotta open your eyes to it.

    I think it would be cool if writers on this forum wrote a little about what inspired them to write their stories or poems before or after they post them. That can be really interesting because it shows how the writers imagination worked.

    The inspiration for the piece I'm gonna write is in my hand write now. Ohh! I'll give clues to the inspiration and if you read the piece and guess what it is correctly I'll give you a nice shiny penny. ^^
