[Inspiration] You’re only given a little spark of madness…

You got to be crazy,
It’s too late to be sane, too late
You got to go full-tilt bozo
Cause, you’re only given a little spark of madness
If you lose that, you’re nothing
Don’t ever lose that cause it keeps you alive.

Robin Williams

What is the craziest thing you have ever done? In my 28 years, I have come to realize that “normality” doesn’t exist. And while writing, I think we can all be inspired by madness. How?

All writers are a little crazy

We are people who spend hours with our gaze lost in the distance, creating characters, building worlds and wondering the strangest things.

Be inspired: next time somebody tells you that something is impossible, let your mind find a way for it to become possible.

Look around

Most people do their best to look balanced and stable, and live hiding their weird traits. But deep down, we all do strange stuff.

Be inspired: browse YouTube and look for those channels who comment on people’s personal experiences. You will see things that will leave you speechless (tbh, both in a good and in a bad way.)

Embrace the crazy!

Characters who do strange things, have weird quirks, go mad and are a kind of insane are my favorites. And as an author, I feel I owe it to my stories to be a little crazy too.

Be inspired: put a crazy story in your wip and think if it made your character more real. There are high chances it will… Because imagination can bring you literally everywhere, if you just let it take control over you.
