With Terry it's so obvious that he reads very widely and thoroughly and so it follows that the more input you work at, the easier the inspiration comes. Inspiration comes as it will and to a large extent other people can't give it to you - you have to be enthralled and fascinated and only you can create that hunger for want of a better term. I'm probably saying it wrong, but it comes down to this - if you're looking for a story don't expect other people to provide one for you, because if you don't find it yourself then you most likely won't get too far with it?
Hope this helps a little

Penfold wrote:DaveC, I read that you considered journalism but had no experience. Our local paper is always advertising journalism courses at one of the local colleges. Is there something similar in your area? Or a correspondence course in it maybe, with a view to becoming a reviews writer for your local paper. With your degree in film studies, I don't know if this is practical for you but it might be worth a try.
