The imagination has many names: subconscious, higher self, inner voice, muse, or even Daisy or Daniel. Throughout history, artists have pulled from this source to create wonderful and sometimes not so wonderful works of art. But what happens when the well of source runs dry?
As writers, we use this source to create story after story. The emptying of the well may be the main cause for what some call 'writer's block.' Input is an important part of being a writer and it shouldn't be overlooked. If it is, you may find yourself dry on ideas and faced with a towering wall before you.
While reading is a great form of fuel for the imagination, it is not the only available energy. To name a few alternatives: photos, paintings, movies, television, music, history. Each of these can provide you with inspiration for your next project.
Are you refueling?
