Time Travel Stories

I love time travel in fiction.

That is one of the main reasons why I love Doctor Who.

 

I love how this storytelling device can put ideologies from vastly different cultures, separated by decades or centuries, up against each other. By doing this, we can compare them, and find strengths and weaknesses in both. It can also just lead to funny jokes, or cool imagery, like a medieval knight riding on a velociraptor and wielding a laser sword.

Writing Inspiration #5 – Other Writers

Writing Inspiration #4 was about taking inspiration from video essays, often about analyses of certain works or writers.

That sort of skipped over the more obvious advice, to simply take inspiration directly from those same works and writers.

Even the glacier-hike I mentioned here before set my mind ablaze with ideas about the troll-kingdoms “probably” living under those mountains.

 

The nature part is the most important.

Writing Inspiration #2 – Music

Like with visual art, there are many ways which music can inspire you when you write.

It can set you in the correct mood or mindset. Or maybe the lyrics of a song can set your mind on an idea.

 

But for me the song below brings a particularly inspiring feeling to my heart. Shame!
