The most frequent question writers are asked is some variant on, "Do you write every day or just wait for inspiration to strike?" I want to snarl, "Of course I write every day, what do you think I am, some kind of hobbyist?" But I understand the question is really about the central mystery - what is inspiration?"
- Hilary Mantel
Where do we find Inspiration?
When it hides, chase it up a tree.
Mine for its mystery in colors.
Explore the world with all the senses.
Begin with a sound, add a scent, feel a movement.
Continue with tickles and taste.
By this time you are on a journey of discovery.
Inspiration has erupted.
Then just write.
