“Behind every successful writer there were a list of inspirations” – Unknown
This facet can never be overlooked guys. Many times people underestimate our abilities because they don’t know where we have come from but its our job to remember the inspirations that got us to where we are today. So without further a due I give you a list of my early inspirations from books to TV shows, movies and much more.
Summer of us – Holly Chamberlin
I read this book in 2015 and found it incredibly amazing. Each character had a subtle way of growing on me though individually they were very different. The unique relationship they developed over one summer was remarkable since they were strangers at the beginning.
Lesson Learnt: Well in my opinion every lesson would vary for each character but as a writer I loved the complexity Holly developed while still keeping the reader connected with everything that was happening throughout the entire story.
Sisterhood of the traveling pants series – Ann Brashares
My most admired author wrote this young adult book in 2001. Before becoming eclectically balanced I was a dedicated reader of the adventure genre. This series always made me miss home during my teen years but I also enjoy the luxuries of being in the outdoors. In this series Ann used the reflective tone to recount the various experiences of each of the girls’ summer while there were apart. She also used humor and sarcasm as a way to showcase the funnier escapades of the girls.
Lesson Learnt: Value friendships even when things get tough and also remember that there is nothing more important than family.
You may have a hard time collecting the entire series from your local library but you can always watch the movie
There will so be a special blog post up soon giving you an insight into my life and everything that has happened so far. Look out for that….
Are you still with me? If yes lets keep digging into my pocket of inspirations
Have you ever watched the movie A Princess for Christmas?
Writers Janeen Damian and Micheal Damian did a fantastic job in brining out the inner princess in me. I mean its not Christmas yet but boy these movies just unravel all the jolly feelings.
The movie started with Young woman given the responsibility of taking care of her niece and nephew. As the drama continued they journeyed to a castle in Europe where Jules fell unwittingly for Prince Aston. The suspense as the movie trails closer to the end gives me chills every time.
Lesson Learnt: ‘The best relationships start unexpectedly.’ The techniques used here aren’t as clear as day but after detailed research Plausible Alternate Plot and Advanced Foreshaming were the only two that remained consistent throughout the movie.
Bare with me dear readers for film analysis isn’t my strong suit but surely I tried my best to provide you with the most accurate information as I can.
But did you know Aston has oped his game since then? Last I heard he was sleeping with a time traveler
The Big Bang Theory
Oh my I could never get enough of Sheldon!! He is the glue that fits everything together and keeps me laughing all night. I’m sure you’ve see this sitcom before right?
Much of this series is based around science particularly physics. Even in their relationships there has been subtle interferences every now and then.
Lesson Learnt: Well there are too much to mention…..But do share some that you have learnt if you watch as much as I do 🙂
Be sure to check out Young Sheldon!
Everything about this TV show gives me chills. I may have watch the entire thing twice but hey who’s counting right.
Mr. Schuster was so optimistic about making the New Directions national champions that they ended up finding their individual strengths, achieved goals and accepted their voices all in the process. But Sue! She was their cheerleading coach always out to sabotage every move they made. The glee club was never out of a challenge.
Lesson Learnt: There is much to be learnt about friendships, relationships and most of all daily realities that young teenagers face.
You want more nuh?? I cant give it though there needs to be space for your inspirations too so I’ll be anxiously waiting.
So Let me know in the comments!!!
