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
I checked out the mentioned novel's plot. Hats off to your positivity and efforts. When I asked abt sad stories, I didn't think of real ones, in which one is involved so deeply. Loved your answer :) You inspired me too.
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'm sorry for your loss. And I respect you for the great cause you're working for. You've channelized your feelings in great way.
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.
The sad stories that inspire you have good endings. :) Struggles to fight the weaknesses which are of our own creations can be tough! And when one comes out in flying colors, it's like the bright rainbow after the stormy rain :)
I haven't seen that but I love the fact that you were inspired. Our difficult challenges can be used for good when we share with other people. We find solutions that way. Good for you!
