Our Inspiration as a Writer

Updated on October 10, 2012

Surprisingly I'm here. And really do not know how this article is going to end...or how it got started.

Time runs so quick! I can't believe I'm here writing about what really inspires me. I might say it's a great deal of luck and the love for the craft. My great grandfather became a famous writer and we just did inherit his joy for writing. Amazing how we can delve into deepest humanity and capture the best moments with our own inquisitive mind. Fortunately technology has been on our side. Probably our own great grand kids will relate to our ranting one day in the near future. Forgot to mention the date, today is:

July 25th, 2062

Computer! continue with our writing, we are going to take a nap....

Finally, we could say that we were close to being annihilated back in 2036. International Alliance for Humanity (IAH) did divert this 99942 Apophis that came close to us on April 13, 2036. While I'm resting The auto editor is just coming up with ideas that were supposed to be added on future articles.

What Really Inspires Me?

I think is the love for writing and the importance of being heard. Deep inside we pay homage to those progenitors that made their craft interesting. Is a little easier right now. Fragmented thoughts come together and can create articles like this one. A painter decides on the colors, shades and contrasting moods before presenting us with his final piece of art. I do write with a heart and the rest just follows. Way before, writers had to depend on inspiration and a certain brain. Today we take advantage of powerful tools that literally got embedded into our own embryo-genetic blastocyst. This depends on parents request though. Inspiration can come at any galactic minute and we would have to stop getting to know that latest IPad 4D Holographic , and go for it! Inspiration from the heart will certainly never die...

What I learned from My Great Grandad

My great grand 'Pop-pop' was Joseph De Cross. He did publish three books on poetry and another one on contemporary Math. His Book on relationships has been republished so many times. My grandfather Jeff, used to tell me how he began to be interested in writing as well, after his own dad. I guess it runs in the family and... genes do play a big role in the final alpha-genome. I was into ek-Books, since first grade. Ek-Books replaced e-Books in 2026.

Mom used to read to us with patience and care, and we did hear. My memory and personality added to my real meaning in life, put together this Author. My great grand dad, went through the same process back in 2012. He had a will and a strong desire to succeed. After catching up with the 'hubs' he wrote. I became interested in writing. Felt as though he was here to tell me the tale of his life.


Where Am I Heading..?

I am researching about parallel worlds and the meaning of us in this Universe. 19 billion of souls have a reason to be on earth, and we are running out of food and... this rampant evilness has not stopped at all.

Sooner or later we will have to emigrate from this God given place. Icebergs did melt consistently, and we had to rely on floating cities. My writing will focus on greener than greener content. Those module colonies on the moon did help us to understand our limitations. I would love to improve my style of writing, which takes time and patience.

So far, I have been writing from this Lunar housing called LIV , and I feel comfortable with it. Even though I'm taking a nap, I can keep writing with no problem at all.

A Message to Our Writing and Inspirational Forefathers...

You paved the way for us. And we have inherited your soul. Your life won't be forgotten and your legacy will be passed on. Thank you so much for the gift great grand dad! It was opened 50 years later and It was awesome! That piece of poetry was out of this world!


"I know you will be here, and I don't know your name

I want to congratulate the brain that was not created in vain

Shaking hands through the word

I know I am already proud to call you great grand son!"

How About...30 years...?

    Thanks Josh and VocalCoach,

    Honestly...the hub wrote itself, meaning it came from the heart. Been busy on another installment and almost done. Time and technology will keep our inspiration alive, we will be gone... but the untamed words will be looking... into the corners of people's souls.

    This is truly an exceptional hub and I find it to be your best one yet. As I read through this inspiring account, my eyes filled with tears. When I reached the final "extract" from your grandfather, the tears were running down my face and I was further filled with a warm, inspiring light. This will be shared again and again. Thank you. Thank you!

Have a great day!

    @Mhatter99, Lol. I guess that was a good humorous comment? Thanks for checking on us. We like that hat of yours!

    This is sort of like a Back To The Future type of article, where Ipod's are like flying skate boards, and people are being tele-transported via the next dimensional teleport LOL.

    Your hub is definitely Star Trek like, light years beyond Buck Rogers, and it also has a slight drop of Spacely Sprocket written all over it. I love your word flow here Lord, keep these cool creative hubs flowing, it only gets better over millenniums of space-time Hehe! as you warp back to today, on that well known hyper drive express mobile.

    You are your grandfather for sure, and I like to chat with your old self every now and then as well. Smooth technique once again, similar to the hilariousness of That Darn God Particle hub you wrote a while back.

    What a wonderful hub to leave for future generations. I write with the intent of doing just that, poetry is the elixir of living, telling, sharing and through it's harmony with life I hope that some of my work will reach out to a few. Like your great grandfather did for you, it instilled a desire to write. You my Lord are dynamic and we learn from you. Getting a peak into our past once we are gone will be done by what we leave in our writings. Keep writing Lord as you inspire us all.
