WQWWC – Writer’s choice # 3 – Inspiration to write

This week Terri is our host for WQWWC

For Writers Quotes Wednesday Writing Challenge, the sky is the limit. Especially this week as it is writer’s choice—that’s YOU, the writer.

WQWWC Suggestions

My choice this week is;

How we are inspired to write;

You get ideas from daydreaming. You get ideas from being bored. You get ideas all the time. The only difference between writers and other people is we notice when we’re doing it” ~Neil Gaiman

I love this quote about how we get inspired to write. Just sitting at the cafe, people watching at the mall or walking by myself, I suddenly get an idea that I think would make a good blog post.

Sometimes, we don’t need something dramatic to inspire us. The situations and the circumstances around us inspire us to write. Political climate is a great motivator. People should rise their voices or pick up their pens if they want to change the world around them.

“I have never started a poem yet whose end I knew. Writing a poem is discovering.”

Robert Frost

Although, I don’t consider myself a poet, I love this quote as it is absolutely true for me too. Whenever I write a poem, I never think it out or bother to find rhyming words for it. I let it come directly from my mind to my paper ( metaphorically). Afterwards, I might edit the mistakes but nothing much.

It sounds easy, but it really isn’t! But those who write, and have the talent for storytelling, they would find it easy! For the rest of us, it is hard work.

“And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.”

Sylvia Plath

This quote brings us back a full circle back to the first quote. It’s all about the imagination to notice happenings around us and the courage to write about them.


I hope you find the topic for this week’s WQWWC interesting.

  1. These are great! Everyone goes about writing in their own way, being inspired by different things, and being able to express the thoughts and feelings through poems, stories, music, or art.

  2. Wow! These quotes are amazing, and resonate with me very well. I love that quote about writing being discovery, never knowing the ending until we get there. That is just so. Lovely post, Sadje.

  3. Writing does take a lot of courage, Sadje. I’m thinking about this month’s Story Chat. The author chose to fictionalize a traumatic event in his family’s life. It’s hard to put yourself out there in writing. But what you can learn from it is phenomenal. A great post today with some quotes I want to remember. 🙂
