    How do you get inspiration on what to write about?

    The hardest part these days for me is to decide what to write about that will be evergreen and have enough content.  Any tips?

    Look for inspiration in other books, for the fictional word holds no boundaries.  If that however does not work, search back into your deepest memories.   I will look at the earliest memories of my childhood, and let my mind wander from their.  Also, if you go to a public place, you can single people out and create back stories about them.  It's harmless, because the chances that the person is exactly as you made them are exponentially small.  What I do is I notice someone, come up with a name, a back story, and then a plot that will put that character in a strengthening and/or weakening position.  Hope I helped

    That is easy, find the inspiration in the things that interest you, things you already have some knowledge of and allow the synchronicity of learning to move you to the edges of those subjects. Explore the fringes of those related topics, research them and familiarize yourself with them. Investigate, read and use critical thinking to find ideas about your interests that you haven't explored before.

    The writing is the hard part, yet it begins with one word, just as any journey begins with one step. For me writing helps me to clarify my thinking, of course I write about topics most writer won't touch if you paid them but I do not write to prove anything merely to plant the seed of knowledge . . . what you do with the information is your business.

    Look at all the interesting topics that comprise our world news, read an article online and then ask yourself the questions the author didn't answer . . . you now have a topic and a reason to research, answer your own question in the form of an article.

    My inspiration comes from simple observations of what is happening around me. People living life...there's always a story there!
