Here’s what I’m doing tonight:
I’m a big fan of Studio Ghibli, and Hayao Miyazaki in particular (he wrote this one, but didn’t direct). Miyazaki is one of my biggest influences as a writer. That might sound strange, since he makes movies and I make books, but it’s the truth. Watching these movies is so inspiring. I can watch them over and over, and every time I’ll catch something new. Every frame has so much detail, every little background object or shot of scenery has a story to tell.
Books can be very inspiring, but inspiration can come from anywhere. Studio Ghibli movies consistently inspire me to write stories. I love them and I can hardly wait to see this one.
What inspires you?
