Every writer knows that when you get a spark––call it inspiration or your Muse, it’s hard to ignore when it comes a knocking. You wouldn’t want to ignore it anyway. It’s every writer’s lifeline. It’s what drives you to indulge in what you love and wish to create. No one would call themselves a writer if they didn’t love writing or get an overwhelming sense of joy in creating something they have imagined in their head. Words are what brings your imagination into physical being. Depending on the writer, some are able to just sit at their computer and construct the story in their heads immediately. Others prefer to start with a rough outline of how they want their story to unfold before they start typing it out. I fall into the latter category for the most part.
