C.S Lewis and Ravi Zacharias really gets me going. The concepts of truth, and theory of thought is deep in my pores it seems.
Open mics and workshops.
Mostly when I read something really good I feel inspired. But it's not just about a good story. The writing itself has to be clever and funny and smart for me to really want to compete. (Because everything is a competition in my world.)
Again, it depends. Usually, I'd respond to writing that reflects the soul or writing that philosophizes about aspects of human life, especially parts which concern myself.
All, the reading is a good inspiration to me, but i like to write genuine stuff, i dont like copy to anyone.
I enjoy the Bible mostly. But, any motivational book also works well for me. Sometimes it inspires me to create non-fiction, and sometimes it inspires me to work on my fiction works. But, it can also be something I read in the newspaper, or hear on the radio, or see on television, or in a movie. Anything that speaks a "hidden" truth motivates me to write and extrapolate on it, whether it be in the form of non-fiction or fiction.
Inspirational work, politics, spiritual, peoples life stories.
As I said earlier I'm a big fan of Poalini and his Eragon books. But I also love the late Dutch author Baantjer, who was a crime writer.
The good kind. Doesn't matter if it's non-fiction, fiction or what have you. If it's good, it cranks my tractor.
Nonfiction like Huxley's essays or lectures.
A really great script, or watching a really great film.
Tabloids. They are ridiculous in their superficiality. They are my muse.
Anything with fantacy.
I like a good paced story that will keep me guessing but isnt overly ornate in the language else I find myself speed reading and skipping huge chunks.
Everything I ever read insired my in one way or another.
