As is customary with such a project, people become participants by writing along the lines of the theme.

I like the sharing aspect of these things.

What inspires me? Creativity. It's my No1 religion. It has saved me MANY times – whether it's writing a poem, taking a picture or painting – doesn't matter how “good” it is. Recently, I had a lot on my mind, was feeling extremely frustrated, couldn't sleep, refused to sleep – at 3am, I turned my back on my computer (which was also playing up, by the way), sat down on the floor & started drawing with colouring pencils. 5 minutes into it, the stress had lifted.

Which of these articles did you find most interesting? Do you find that frustration is a good source of inspiration like above?
