Hello lovely souls✨
qoth: How/where do you find inspiration to create?
I find most of my inspiration in people, which I would think is fairly common - if not a little vague. I find it in myself, my own experiences, memories, emotions, and ideas.
I find it in strangers, in the stories my head concocts as to why they smiled, as an accidental listener to conversations on the street, or in the way they seemingly approach the world.
I find it it the words and spirit of the people I love, and I find it in the creations of others - in music, writing, or art.
Most of the time, I will hear, see, or read something; a word, a gesture, a sentence, and it will somehow... stick with me. Repeat over and over again inside my head until I get it down somewhere. I’ll try to figure out why it did so, what kind of emotions it triggered, what memory I associate the feeling of it with. Because, above all, my creations are autobiographical, and I’ll use my inspiration as a springboard to certain places in my own mind.
