Let me start off by saying, I don’t think of myself as a very creative person: I can’t paint, I can’t sculpt, and writing is not my strongest quality (though I’m gonna give it my best shot here).
In some cases, the inspiration to create art strikes those who have the means to run with it on their own… In other cases, the inspired party needs a hand sorting through the muck to get to the gold… This is one such post…
After sitting and staring at my laptop for what wound up being a few weeks, and calling on a friend to help me make my jumbled words make a bit more sense, I have finally decided what to do for this post.
The truth is, I felt inspired to write (or begin writing, as the case became) this post, because I live with a person who tries to be creative, I’m friends with people online who are creative, and enjoy creative works, though I can’t really create them myself.
I wanted to show what inspiration can do to even those who claim not to be creative. I ended up writing the opening part of a story that has been floating around in my head, and hope it inspires you to create your own story, or something you find intriguing.
The following story is a rough first draft, written by a novice. It is without edits for grammar, punctuation, or any content tweaks at all. It may be painful to read, so look at it for its story, not its degree of polish.
Like I said at the beginning, I am not a writer, nor do I claim to be. I got the inspiration to write this post after reading all the great posts that were done before me.
This is me, being creative.
Now, it is your turn.
Are you inspired to finish the story, or are you inspired by this beginning to do a totally different project?
Whatever you choose, just let me know… I’m curious to see where this goes too.
