Sadness and melancholy, I found out that when I had good mood and everything seems ok and so on, my will to create was always fading away...

Music. When I listen to it I just see images and lines. I can walk away from a song for a few years and when I come back I will see the exact same image as the first time I heard it. Hence why often I just turn on trans-like music when I draw

Being outside in the fields or the woods inspires me. Usually my writings are centered around romanticism. Music and Celtic patterns and drawings inspire my drawing as well as nature.

It has absolutely always been music and most of the time it had to be paired with an inhuman consumption of cigarettes. Which is a nightmare now that I've quit.

Deadlines, time restrictions and other difficulties. I'm at my most creative when I'm under pressure, or have something to overcome.

Because I'm forced to think creatively. I'm forced to think "How can I do something well in such a short amount of time," or "How can I overcome said obstacle." I love being stumped when writing a story or song, because when you overcome it, it feels so much better, and the results are always better when I'm forced into a corner. Also, I donn't have time to second guess myself and think my work is terrible.

Maybe you had those ideas already but just thought they were shitty and the pressure made you not care and go through with them anyway? I read somewhere that "pressure makes me peform better" is bullshit because science research.

I think it's got something to do with that. I don't have time to second guess whether an idea is good or not, I only have time to refine it.

because art (or creative work) is just an escape from difficulties of life ...when you have a deadline you wand to get it over ,to escape from it,so you became creative which allows you to do something else that you like and not that boring/exhausting deadline work.

I might be pretty alone in this, but my creativity is most inspired by video games. Yes, those childish things . For example, the last song I wrote, was entirely inspired by The Witcher 3 and the character Ciri.




EDIT: What the hell did I write here??? Must've been someone else, because other than that one mess of a song, I am not inspired by video games. I don't even play them anymore. I am inspired by two things: wild nature and human nature.
