Have you ever been inspired by a sad story?


Stories have happy and sad beginning and/or endings. Stories can be inspiring despite of the mood they create or genre they belong. Have you come across a sad story which has inspired you? Which story was it? Why and how did it inspire you despite of being sad? What did the inspiration lead to? (Disclaimer: Image from Pixabay - open domain images)

    I read a brief plot of "The Notebook". Wow. Best answer choice for this one is tough, but I completely relate to your answer... each sad story reminds me of being grateful for things I've which the characters of story don't have or lose. Gr8 ans :)

    Story writers would find inspiration in anything and everything! :D I agree, you have to be "moved" yourself in order to create something which can move others. Big ideas or not, inspirations which touch your heart and drive you are really worthwhile

    A lot of books by John Steinbeck moved me in some of the same ways. I too, can relate. Yet, I only truly admire the sad stories that tell of the happy living in spite of the pain, walking through the pain. Harder to do and say sometimes

    You're right, and the good in the bad is the basis of inspiration, it gives us strength to keep going... Sometimes I compare and tell myself that I'm in a much better situation and so I shouldn't give up before I've tried my best :) Amazing Answer!

    Hi, I agree, after all those who learn from other people's mistakes, will make their own "original" mistakes :) If we keep repeating each others' mistakes, it would be kind of re-inventing the wheel :D

    Hi. You're right, "seeking the expression of what is inspired with words" can be really challenging. Thanks for responding.

    Thanks for responding.. and sorry about bringing back some sad memories :( but if they're inspiring too, I guess it's okay?

    I must agree everyone goes through a personal struggle in life. Have you ever seen "The Story Trek" on BYU TV? I watched a couple stories from that, and it inspired me to create a hub over my own dark pit of life.
