There are many ways to find inspiration: running in the park, sitting in the dark, or going to a social event to find that creative spark. I used to be under the impression that if I needed silence to think, that’s the only way I’d be able to feel inspired. In my college years, I realized I needed to stop waiting for the “perfect” moment. Waiting for inspiration to strike could mean not writing at all.
Now sometimes I actually prefer to have noise and chaos around me; I’ve adapted to my surroundings and used the craziness of college to grow in different ways.
Do you think it’s better to wait until the right moment strikes, or write regardless?
Do you think changing the way you write means losing yourself or growing as a writer?
Are you flexible in your environment? Do you enjoy or hate a change of pace?
