Recently, I been getting ideas and inspirations for my stories.
Eventhough the timing is bad because I get these ideas at work, I am not the type of person who reject ideas.
My biggest fear as a writer has always been running out of ideas.
So whenever, I have a steady stream of ideas, I am very happy.
I been trying to get my ideas out.
It's hard to explain my creative process as a writer.
My stories are usually fueled by the characters. So my characters are very important to me.
My characters are usually born from emotions.
So my inspiration are usually from emotions. I get these emotions randomly. Sometimes through songs, sometimes random thoughts or books or movies.
I usually have to process these emotions. Put them into a character or see which emotion fit which character.
Then, from that, the characters will react to the emotions, creating the scenes. So for my stories, it is completely fueled by emotions.
I know it sounds complicated. But that's my process for creating my stories.
But if you were to ask me where exactly I get my ideas for my stories, I would say I don't know.
I would say, somehow, they just come to me. I won't even dare say they are completely my ideas because I feel like my ideas came from the universe.
They aren't exactly mine.
It's like having children.
You made them. Yes.
But they don't belong to you.
They are their own person and you are a proud parent.
And being a writer is the same thing.
You are proud of your characters but I am aware I don't own them. They are alive and they will do what ever the hell they want.
