Inspiration comes from so many places for me. I love YA books, history, and Sci Fi movies and TV. When I read a passage in a book that brings forth an emotion I so badly want to create that for a fellow reader. When I watch a movie or tv show that has amazing dialogue that sticks in my mind I want to create that too!
I have been re-watching Fringe and that show is perfection! See Below for proof!
Honestly this show has made me pee a little bit everytime I watch it. I want to create this ingenious dialogue in things I write.
I am also currently reading The Fiery Heart by Richelle Mead. It is the fourth book in the Bloodlines series and well the dialogue between Sydney and Adrian is delicious. Richelle Mead knows how to write and keep you intrigued, her characters are so well developed and something every write should aim for. Where was I .... oh yeah The Fiery Heart! I got to a part that made me laugh so hard I had to put the book down for a few minutes. Below is the great dialogue narrated by Adrian:
"A sly look appeared in her eyes. "Oh, I don't know. I bet I could totally tell you something you never saw coming."
"You're welcome to try."
"If I surprise you, will you not do the dream?"
"Let's hear what you've got."
She hesitated a few seconds, and although there was still a mischievous glint in her eyes, I detected a little nervousness too. “Well...I'm on birth control"
I was drinking the water again and choked on it. It took several moments of coughing before I could gasp out. "What?"
She shrugged, unbelievably casual, as though the suggestion of having sex wasn't a big deal. And yeah, there was no question about it. I was surprised. Very surprised. I should've known better that to doubt her abilities. "It takes a while for it to start working, so I figured I should be prepared, just in case."
"Just in case," I repeated, still dumbfounded.
Whatever nervousness she'd had was turning to delight at my discomfort. "Come on, are you saying you don't think about it?""-Richelle Mead The Fiery Heart!
It only gets better from there. If you want, scratch that, need a great read you should buy a Richelle Mead book.
Above are some of my inspirations when I write.... There are lots of things that inspire me and I will keep blogging about them. Also feel free to comment your inspiration below maybe we can share. :)
