Week 21: Someone Who Inspires You

This question isn't fair >:( Not because I don't have anyone to name, but because I have way too many people to name.

A ton of people inspire me. Basically, if you're someone who managed to delve into a creative field and somehow make a career out of it despite external circumstances and a ton of hardship, then I admire you a tonnnn and you inspire me. I want to be you!
  • I'm inspired by Mary Shelley because she was just a young girl when she single-handedly revolutionized and invented a new genre.
  • J.K. Rowling for writing when life was terrible and everything was a failure
  • Lorde for knowing what she wants and who she is at such a young age and not letting anyone deter her from that.
  • Trent Reznor for making music even at the darkest periods of his life, battling addiction and loss, and pushing on to newer things.
  • Chuck Wendig for his humor and talent and how he basically became an Ascended Fanboy.
    • (He got to write for Star Wars! And piss off a ton of homophobic people in the process. Imagine if I got to do that--but for Halo!)
I'm also inspired by people close to me. My parents, for all their hard work and for believing in my writing and my dreams. My brother, for not letting life's crap ever get to him and managing to navigate through life without the occasional emotional breakdown. (I really do need to learn how to do that). All my friends for being cool soon-to-be engineers and theater people and visual artists.

It's a good group to be around :D

"Science and science fiction have done a kind of dance over the last century... The scientists make a finding. It inspires science fiction writers to write about it, and a host of young people read the science fiction and are excited, and inspired to become scientists...which they do, which then feeds again into another generation of science fiction and science..."
