Inspiration – Writing

What is inspires you to write, or what generates ideas for stories?

I had and inspiration earlier this year. I was watching The Royal Shakespeare Company’s newest version of Hamlet, on Twin Cities Public Television, Patrick Stewart was playing both Hamlet’s Father and his uncle. We were in the last scene when Hamlet is dying in his friend’s arms. Horatio says “Good night, sweet prince” and that was all this idea needed. It hit me like a ton of bricks. I know what I want to write about, I know who is in the story, I know what the cause of the story is. Now I just need to finish writing it.
