"Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent. And don’t bother concealing your thievery - celebrate it if you feel like it. In any case, always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: “It’s not where you take things from - it’s where you take them to."

— Jim Jarmusch

I had an amazing Christmas and have gotten so many lovely things that have inspired me and given me food for thought.  Books, films, everything and anything.  I love when you get filled with new ideas for the new year.

Great quote and so true! I love getting lost in films, books, music, art even magazines Can provide so much inspiration. Very important for writers. I read on someones blog that chilling out, watching TV, reading etc. was imperitive for creative writers. I like this idea :)

Happy New Year hun
