In ancient Greek mythology, the Muses were the nine inspirational goddesses of literature, the arts and science. When ancient Greeks wrote epic poetry, it was said they were visited by the muse Calliope. We still use the term today when we are talking about trying to find inspiration. In writing, inspiration is important, it’s what brings you your stories. If you’ve ever read the book Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert (which you should) she talks about how ideas are kind of floating around in the world and if you don’t say yes to it, then it will find someone else that will say yes. Inspiration can be found in many places and often when you least expect it. Unfortunately, sometimes the harder we try and find inspiration, the more it eludes us.
So, as a prelude, please don’t take this as the gospel. These are suggestions that may spark an idea, or leave you open to being visited by Calliope. In the end, at the very least you’ll have had a bit of fun and maybe something you saw that meant nothing two months ago will suddenly become crystal clear in the shower.
I hope this list gets the juices flowing and that your cup runneth over with inspirations soon! If you have more suggestions, please share them in the comments below so you can be a muse for our writing community.
