When I am full of grief, strength, or joy, my pencil imediatly flies across the paper. After seeing a great movie, or reading a touching book, I feel like taking those ideas and squeasing them for all their worth. Pretty much any thing to do with horror or humor awakens my itchy writing finger!

What inspires me is being outside. Just feeling the rain gently stroke my cheeks and crying in the breeze makes me just want to jump on a fresh peice. In fact, my fingers are tingling now!!

I am inspired to write when I am full of emotion. I also write when I am intrigued by something that has happened to me or someone else, or something I read or listened to.

Strong emotion and feeling inspires me for sure. It's like I have to let it out or...I don't know...I'll exsplode! It feels like I'm really doing something worth while whenever I write a poem. I want to touch people and get them thinking outside the box for a change. I never ever ever stop writting for as long as I live (even if I suck). It's my only passion besides music (but that's a whole different story). Good question, by the way.

I once wrote a poem called Muck Queen...all about my life at the barn scooping manure! I love horses more than anything and I am lucky enough to have my own horse. He inspires me more than anything else.

There is really no limit to the things that can inspire me. I am usually inspired, however, by a flaw I see in the world. If I see a flaw I word my opinion on it in a poem. I also word my ideals and my love of fantasy in my poems.

Lots of things...

My family and their traditions and ways, and their stories and struggles...

Nature at its finest...

Minute happenings at school...someone being picked on...nobody caring...

My friends and my relationship with them...

How I feel about things that are happening in the world...

A really good book or song...

Things we can learn from the past...

Lets just say ANYTHING with a meaning to ME is what I write about!!!

The world in general.
Anything:
A voice.
A lone leaf blowing in the wind.
A story.
An event.
Even nothing at all.
There's always some way to make up a poem or a story of some sort. You can make up a lot out of nothing.

Teal Henderson continues to inspire me even though I've never met her before.  I read "Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul" and her poems were great.  She died when she was a teenager.

Usually listening to my favorite songs will inspire me to write some poems. But also going to my local park and sitting in my favorite tree will help since I'm close to nature and I could hear the birds.heartsmileycheeky keep writing poetry everyone!

when what inspires me is animals nature songs and poetry :) :) :) :) <3 <3 but what inspires me alot is nature going outside looking at the sky running my back yard looking at plants insects and unusual things. one time i went to the woods for a camp and me and my friend made a fire a tent and are one little room in the tent so when we were eating s'mores and then we saw a grass hopper in are s'mores and i drowned mines in the water. and we saw racoons and wolfs so i was scared but nature still inspires me even if there animals or insects that can kill you. nature inpires me alot <3

What inspires me is everything. What I look at at the spur of the moment and if I have enough feelings about it, to write it.

I don't need to have insparation.Me writing stories and poems make me what I am and who I am...I wrote since I was 6 and writng just runs in my WHOLE family.....I live in Bangladesh And in Bangladesh it needs a LOT of money and work to get ONE poem done in U.S.A. and my sister did it by logging in a U.S. writing website and when they saw her writings and poetry,they published it in a magazine!!! So i need no such insparation...writing makes me who I m.

What inspires me? Well, nature does. I love being around the woods since I was raised in Washington State. It's so wonderful! Every morning I wake up and go outside into the woods. I smell pine trees and evergreens all the time. Sometimes, I will smell cinnamon. Just being around that makes me want to sing, dance, write, or draw.

I take ideas from my own life, for ex. I am deaf in one ear and it causes a lot of pain and/or greif for me. When I write about that, my pieces become less bland. I also piece together ideas from books, life, movies basically anything I find interesting. smiley
