"Genius is one per cent inspiration and ninety-nine per cent perspiration." -Thomas A. Edison

On a tribe.net listing about webdesign, someone asked the question ”Where do you go for inspiration?”.

I’ve never understood this question. I don’t have to go anywhere for inspiration.

I CAN’T STOP IT!


It’s the perspiration part of the equation I have trouble with.

I have half developed stories of divine badgers and sarcastic heavenly stags. I have an idea for a childrens story about a family circus which is actually managed by twin chimpanzee janitors. I have a remix version of Swing Low Sweet Chariot and Swing Down Chariot that I have performed publicly but never written down. I have 11 out of 12 chapters of Thor vs. Cthulhu hanging in limbo. I have a historical novel about an amazing Scottish knight that I have been researching for years but I have never written more than a few pages. I have an obscure artist interview blog planned out on paper.

So, anyway, let’s take this question to the people.
Poll #550318 Inspiration

Do you have to look for inspiration or does it stalk your every thought?

If you seek inspiration, where so?
