What inspires us varies depending on the individual, but in case you're looking for something new to fuel your creative juices, why not take a leaf out of the books of some of these authors?

  • Agatha Christie: Doing the dishes
  • Edna O'Brien: A cup of tea
  • F. Scott Fitzgerald: Alcohol - 'Any stories I wrote when I was sober were stupid.'
  • Gore Vidal: 'First coffee, then a bowel movement, and then the muse joins me.'
  • D. H. Lawrence: Liked to write when he felt spiteful.
  • Kingsley Amis: The urge to annoy his readers inspired him the most.
