  • This is a free writing entry. Note that I wrote down my thoughts, and that was it.
    To be honest this writing prompt was surprisingly hard for me to write about. I first made a list naming all the people that inspire me. It was filled with cats, bands, and youtubers. I tried writing about one of them and then I decided to write about someone else. After about changing my mind four times I finally picked.

    Who is my hero?
    It seems like a very simple question. But it’s not.

    I have a hard time trusting people. I don’t like to get to close to people because I know that someday they are going to leave me. And most likely it’s my fault.

    Not one person is my hero because I do not want to put my life in their hands. I don’t want to get attached,
    but I do.

    Certain people come in my life. They help me get through the hardest things in life, and then they leave me.

    What inspires me is living things. I find them so fascinating. People are so incredibly ugly, but so incredibly beautiful at the same time. It’s funny how we come from stars. We come from stardust. All these different pieces of stars have come together and created something that is alive. We have come from nothing, but dust. We have come so far. I can feel the most amazing things. It’s incredible that I think these extremely complex ideas I can put puzzles together and never tell anyone.

    I saw a physic once and after telling me lots of things he looked into my eyes and told me that someone was waiting for my book to be published. I thought that this was amazing how he knew that I wanted to become an author and that I am writing a book. But to know that someone is waiting for my book just hit me.

    What inspires me is parts of song lyrics and random people on the internet because the funny things they say or the things I can relate to are the things that keep me going.
