Where Do You Draw Your Writing Inspiration From?
Lately, we’ve been sharing all sorts of tricks and tips for teaching writing to your students. There’s been super simple ways to get your students writing. And of course, easy ways to nurture the confidence of your young writers. For the Writing with Design team, we’re always busy looking for more ways to transform and energize your writing class. (And if you have any additional ideas you’d like to share, please don’t hesitate to send an email our way!)
But there’s one question that’s not often asked, one which can provide an eye-opening perspective. Where exactly do you draw your writing inspiration from? It doesn’t matter if you’re in the process of writing your first essay or you’ve been writing for 50 years. This question can be an endless adventure.
In the end, it’s a question that can offer simple insights or it can profoundly change our view of why we write. Whether Jack Kerouac taught you to unleash your creativity or you wanted to capture the action from your favorite comic in prose, the idea remains the same… For many writers, especially ones on the hunt for their voice, it’s a question that’s challenging, but empowering, penetrating, but enormously fun.
