Writing Prompt: Who (or What) Inspires You?

I’ve noticed folks on Facebook creating photographic lists of inspiring famous people. Who or what inspires *you*? Was it a book you read in elementary school that convinced you that writing can be magical? A painting in a small museum? A vista you saw while camping? Something a teacher said? Your best friend’s dollhouse? The feeling in your legs after running your first marathon? Inspiration comes in many forms.

As a writing prompt, think about at least one person (or landscape or material object) that has inspired you to write. Describe that inspiration in words. If you get stuck with the description, try to rely on your five senses to further your language.
