    Go Inspire Yourself! 

    Seeking inspiration outside of yourself is problematical.

    One of my inspirations has a habit of referring to something as “Kantian” — referring to using any maxim as if it were a universal law. If everyone wished to be inspired by someone else, then the burden of being the last in the line of expectations would be rather heavy. Likewise, attempting to inspire others seems doomed to fail due to the often quite shallow depths of intellectual resources available. :|

    How to escape from this quasi-conundrum?

    There are no easy answers to this problem, but here is one idea: Immortalize yourself! Live in a way that has no expectation of a future, no sorrows or regrets about the past — neither of them exist here and now. You will not become anything, you will not receive a reward, you will not find the truth. Simply exist and enjoy yourself in the present. :)

    Love is the Illness Where the Antidote is Worse than the Poison 

    I write many love stories.

    As author, it is very anticlimactic whenever the true inspiration leaves the room before the fictional climax has appeared.

    Hot writing without a fever is probably even more difficult than when the ink well runs dry. :|
