Well, since we never seem to get into any kinda discussions here I figured I'd start rambling for a bit and see if other people start talking. Alright, so there's the talk about books we've read and books vs movies, but quiet, I'm bored and have nothin to do for the next 3hours!
Anyway, I was just mucking bout on iTunes listening to my music, killing time etc, then got thinking about songfics (I don't know where it came from, I really don't...). And it got me thinking about inspiration for writing and all that. Sometimes I hear a song and it really appeals to me, really makes me wanna write though not necessarily but the story to the lyrics.
OBVIOUSLY, in the case of songfics, the stories are inspired by a song. But I'm just curious what inspires people to write. Like would you be watching tv and see an interesting scenario on a show that you'd wanna put you're own spin on? I'm partly curious cuz I haven't written anything in a few months (exam repeats/death/relatives untimely visits/etc) and I could do with some ideas for inspiration.
Oh, another thought: when you do sit down to write, where do you do it? Like do sit down at the computer and start typing? Does it have to be quiet or do you prefer background noise, like music?
I wanna see chatting and I wanna see it now. Or at least humour me for a bit
