Ever wondered about those annoying little inspirational do-hickeys that seem to open every single story on Flashing Georgie's Shorts? Didja, huh? Didja?
Well wonder no more, because the cough, cough legendary COUGH, COUGH G is gonna explain it to you.
Like most creative people, I simply can't just sit down and write something. Be it a blog post (like this) or a short story, I have to be inspired (or motivated, take your pick) by someone or something, before I can start writing.
I say about eighty percent of the time, a song inspires me to write something, while the other twenty percent is split among other items like people, places, things, chance snippets of conversations or other stories. Even wrote a short story based on a verse from the Bible.
Because I feel that the way I get my inspiration to write is somewhat unique, I want to share it with the world at large. That's why I put those little blurbs at the beginning of my stories, so that you can get yet another glimpse into what makes G, G. Google some of the songs that inspire me.
If anything, you'll be pleasantly surprised at my taste in music.
Almost forgot the requisite question that is the de rigeur of this blog: What things inspire you to write?
