    What inspires your writing?

    Are you writing to benefit financially or to help others in need?

    I do not write for financial gain. I write to inform and help others if they are interested in the subject. I also write to gain peace of mind as I am able to free that something which I am unable to define.

      I totally agree, helping others is my main focus as well, and the  comments of appreciation is also encouraging.

    Quite a few things but the most important one is that I love writing and sharing, hopefully, enjoyable and/or useful information. But inspiration for topics can come from various places such as reading, the internet and picking up bits and pieces from everywhere and anywhere.

      Absolutely, ideas pop up from all sorts, I do enjoy writing also.
      All the best to you.

    Everyday events inspire me to write. Sometimes just to pen down my observation, my thoughts about a certain issue, things that people do not want to talk about, or trying to delve into human psychology.
    If my thoughts and observations can help someone looking for answers, I will be very happy. I have written about some issues that people try to push under the carpet and deny their existence to themselves too. If these hubs have served their purpose it gives me some satisfaction.
    Writing for financial gains is too stressful. That means writing everyday even if the words do not flow. If the money has to come it will come cent by cent smile.

      Word, i feel you on that.  I do the same  just to get it out there,
      and hopefully some one or many will feel the vibe, and like you said penny by penny and comment by comment it's all coming.
      Thanks for the lines, keep well.

      dazzlede, I share your view; writing for pay is extremely stressful. Like you, I write about everyday events and situations. I take note of the way different people respond to situations. I trust that my sharings can be of use to others.

    I tend to wait for inspiration to hit me. I was watching TV the other day and the idea came to me immediately. I'm not even sure how the TV show relates to the idea I came up with, but something triggered my brain. wink

    Thanks for the question.

      Good, that your inspiration comes from all sort of resources.
      All the best to you with your writing.

    Mainly, a feeling of needing to communicate the stories that have become stocked up in my head.  Sometimes I find a good story in a dream I've had, a topic I've discussed in a class, or just from something random that I witnessed or heard throughout the day.  I find great ideas for writing everywhere and I feel that my want to communicate these things gives me the inspiration to write.

    My Faith! My Life's Experience that help me to overcome many
    obstacles and hardships, and challenges that tried to stop me!
    Through faith and hope that I now have. It's my heart desire is
    to give everyone the message of hope! When everyone wanted
    to give up on me, and never wanted to give me a chance, to
    tell how my decision and choices that brought me consequences
    that could have destroyed my life, I just want to encourage those
    who feel that they are weak and hopeless, that inside of each one
    of us, is given a gift! It's our choice to decide to use them or keep
    them inside.. I desire to use the precious gift of Faith and share
    it with anyone who will listen! I want to be a blessing and be
    a encouragement and say, " Never Give Up!!

      Faith is a powerful tool, encouragement for others is kindness and caring.
      Always be kind to others and your blessing will be in abundance.
      Thanks for your comment, and god bless you.
