One of the perks of working a day job again is being able to go to the movies a lot more often. I forgot how much I love going to the movies and how inspiring a different art form can be on my own creative endeavors. In the past couple of week my husband and I have finally been able to catch up on some big movies, like Rogue One and Fantastic Beasts (yes, we were very late seeing both). We also just went to watch A Monster Calls. All three movies inspired me with their story telling and interweaving of characterization. Fantastic beasts inspired my wonder of things around me, something that can really come across in writing. A Monster Calls inspired me not only to think of story telling outside of the box, but how stories impact our lives. On a side note it was visually so pleasing that it also inspired me to get back to my art, but that is another post coming up this week.
So back to writing inspiration, it's great to allow other forms of art and creativity to inspire you. Movies are just another medium of story telling and I think can help you add more visual cues to your writing. Books inspire other books. Non-fiction books can inspire fiction. Poetry and painting can inspire feelings that make their way into novels. All art is inspirational and I am glad that I am getting back to be inspired!
What inspires you in your own creative endeavors or just in life in general?
