Inspiration

My name is Ashley Dugger. I am currently a student at Northern Kentucky University studying Electronic Media & Broadcasting and Journalism, and I also produce videos for NKU’s television station. I have always loved writing, and I started blogging on a whim this year. You can find my blog here, and you can also find me on Pinterest.

Inspiration is a funny thing. You never know when it will hit, how hard it will hit, or what to do with it after it hits you.

Even as I’m writing this, I’m searching for something to inspire this blog post (with very little success). While searching, I ask myself the question, “What inspires me?”

To be honest, I don’t know what inspires me. When I suffer creative block sometimes all I need is a long shower or a good nap. Sometimes I need the wise quotes of poets, authors, and artists.

But more often than not, inspiration hits at the most random time. Like someone paying for a meal for the person standing in line behind them. Or a salute for a soldier from a stranger.

When I get inspired, I usually write it down and hope that my epiphany comes in handy in the future, which doesn’t always happen. But a girl can hope.

What inspires you? More importantly, what do you do when you get inspired?
