So I am working on a bit of writing and I am stuck on a phrase. As you all know an epiphany is a sudden understanding of something brought on by an experience. My questions is this: Is there a phrase, word or term for a sudden interest brought about by a random experience. For example, reading about a characters hobby and getting inspired to learn more about it or watching T.V. and seeing something in the background that just intrigues you. Thank you for helping me put my mind at ease.
