News headlines about stupid things.
Not a specific type of reading inspires me to write. I can gather inspiration from any type. The key is how I feel about what I read determines if I will write.
Readings about life and experiences inspires me mostly to write. I am also fascinated with works of fantasies, specifically works of Neil Gaiman.
Factual, honest detail articles / stories depicting both (or all) sides of a story.
Actually, current event headlines often motivate me...but also, any kind of book or article pertaining to America's early history - the Revolutionary War, our Founding Fathers, etc. Sometimes patterns are evident, or I become aware of a certain character trait, life experiences of one of our early Patriots.
Movies inspire me more than books. For example The Lord of the Rings trilogy. But mystery novels inspire most, and, as I said, Eragon was my biggest inspiration.
All types, as I said I'm a freelance writer/creator, and I'm very inspired and inspirational.....
Science fiction and computer knowledge or political issues
Articles where controversy and innequality are highlighted. Articles where life is just not fair. Books on psychology where there are encouraging case studies about clients that have made some sort of forward movement. Books that challenge basic human concepts about living. Mostly, I'm inspired by trees, people cut them down to make paper to tell stories when the story is in the living tree - just listen!
I'm inspired by anger, so anything I disagree with.
A great plot, well written with unexpected twists, interesting characters and good scenes sometimes inspires me to turn on the computer and begin writing...
Good ones. The ones that made me admire the writer so a dream to be like him/her is created.
When I read something that has incorrect information in it I am motivated to write the correct information simply to make myself feel better in knowing that the truth is out there somewhere. Other things that offer me the motivation are simple truths, delicious recipes, social health, mental health, local activities, early childhood issues, parenting issues and safety issues that we often times ignor due to our schedules.
often it is newspaper, those little articles in the middle or the end of papers,
often it is things thrown in there to fill the paper but the stuff i find can be very intersting, I also read a lot of poetry mostly on the net
True stories inspire me to write. Yesterday I Cried by Iyanla Vanzant touched me very deeply. Also, Maya Angelouís I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings was an excellent read.
I also like to read books about Buddhism; self help books by people like Dr Wayne Dyer and spiritual matters like Gary Zukavís The Seat of the Soul.
