Inspiration Of The Day #1

Hello everyone

I know, I said I was going to bed like half an hour ago and I was already in bed when I had an idea. And since I knew the Moderators would come online soon (and go to bed when I am online again), I figured I shall post this right away so they can close it, if it's not any good.

I intended this thread for everyone to post their inspiration of the day. Something you have read about or a song you've heard or something you have read. Did it inspire you? Do you think it could inspire someone else? Or is it just plain beautiful and you didn't know where else to put it? Then put it here

---------------

I'll start. My Inspiration today is a song, Amy McDonald - This is the life

Oh the wind whistles down
The cold dark street tonight
And the people they were dancing to the music vibe
And the boys chase the girls with the curls in their hair
While the shy tormented youth sit way over there
And the songs they get louder
Each one better than before

And you're singing the songs
Thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go? Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?

And you're singing the songs
Thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go? Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?

So your heading down the road in your taxi for four
And you're waiting outside Jimmy's front door
But nobody's in and nobody's home 'til four
So you're sitting there with nothing to do
Talking about Robert Riger and his motley crew
And where you're gonna go and where you're gonna sleep tonight

And you're singing the songs
Thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go? Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?

And you're singing the songs
Thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go? Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?

And you're singing the songs
Thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go? Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?

And you're singing the songs
Thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go? Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?

And you're singing the songs
Thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go? Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?

And you're singing the songs
Thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go? Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?

Where you gonna sleep tonight?




------------------

I'm very excited for everyone's inspirations

Tried to fix the youtube link and it still doesn't show.

Great thread! Lovely song, totally inspiring!

My inspiration for the day would be missing my dog. He died 2 days ago and I miss him like crazy. He was just a little guy, a toy poodle but I he was even a bigger part of my life than I ever imagined. I want to write something to remind me of him.

Aww, losing a pet is awful I understand how you feel, but it's amazing that this brought you inspiration

This is a great idea for a thread Lynn.

I haven't been inspired yet today. But it's only 1:30 in the afternoon so there's plenty of time yet.

And I'm sorry to hear about your dog Nikki.

Awww I'm so sorry about your dog, Nikki

I was inspired today by the Space Needle. I'm in Seattle and I was thinking about the movie An Affair to Remember, and I had an idea for a fic using that concept.


Thanks for opening the thread, Lynn!

Thank you so much, guys.

The Olympics was a good inspiration as well. Seeing really small countries being represented was awesome. It's always been one of the coolest part of the Olympics for me. A country that doesn't even have 100,000 people having their moment just like the country that has 300 million.

I didn't see the ceremony, but I do love seeing those small countries with just a handful of athletes still being there to participate. It shows amazing spirit!

Me too! That's the only way I'd see any of it I do like to watch Canada come in, though


I think the spirit of the Olympics could be very inspiring for writing Maybe a good AU context for fan fic, too

Well, not much for the day to be honest, but it's somewhat nostalgic. Hope it's okay.

This was the video that inspired one of my stories ("Blind Deceit")...specifically from 1:12 - 2:25

What inspired me today was a visit to a physics fair. There are so many crazy stuff there, and going with my friends really puts me in a good mood
