Writing Tip: Filtering out the noise
While it’s true you can find inspiration anywhere, whether or not you’ll be able to customize and “make it your own” or not is another matter. There is so much noise in the world that it can become all too easy to just recycle someone else’s thoughts through your own work. Turning off and unplugging to listen to your own internal voice is vital to having and maintaining your own personal style and point of view. You are you for a reason. I personally believe there is a place in life that only you can fill; don’t give that up because external noises appear to be louder than your own voice.
