Inspiration Cometh by Spiderwriter Inspiration Cometh by Spiderwriter
This is what inspiration looks like. It comes to get you, and there's not that much you can do about it.

I do not write for friends. I do not write for loved ones. I do not write for fans. I do not write because I enjoy it. I write because I cannot help myself.

-----------------

Yes, I colored this digitally, but I put it in traditional work because I feel as though the majority of my blood, sweat and tears went into the actual drawing.

that quote is priceless. "I write because I cannot help myself." I love it, and I have the same issue!

for some reason I can imagine hacking that creature apart in a Zelda Game.


I wish my inspiration would find me again, not writing sucks.

Conversely, that could also be the dreaded writer's block monster. =P

I like how it has pencils for fingers. :)

Sometimes it scitters around keeping out of sight, but stalking you from the shadows. I recommend you invest in a butterfly net. *smile*

i should invest in a butterfly net. they have so many uses, not just for butterflys.

Why do monsters always come to get us? I think having inspiration as a monster is a very logical thing.

I write beautiful things for you all the time, but I've been writing since before I even knew you existed.

Besides, you'll get the best thing I've ever written: my vows.

Interesting take on your writing motives... I've heard people cook up some crazy reasons about why they write, but nothing like yours. It's a good reason though. Keep feeding off of it.

I agree with the sentiment. I can't help but write. I might even be terrible at it. But no matter what I say or do, there is no stopping.

Brilliant work. Definitely deserves a fav <3.
