The subject of today’s post is inspiration! Where can you get some? What can you do with it?
Well, first of all, if you write, you can find inspiration just about anywhere. The inspiration is always there, but it is usually the motivation that hampers our efforts. But I digress.
A few places to get you started would be:
1. The Internet. Heckfire, you can find a TON of great things to inspire you just by surfing. Find blogs to read, find news stories. They say that more and more people are hitting the web for their newspaper reading so get out there and join them!
2. How about television? I know there are a bunch of great stories that are on each week. I can turn the volume down and make up my own story just by watching their facial expressions.
3. Read! There are so many fabulous books out there with information about anything you will ever want to know. How about a book on sailing? Golf? Building a better birdhouse? Can you just see what your mind will do when you find new information to digest?
And so on. There is no limit to inspiration! I can find something to write about from listening to the birds chirping outside my front door. It depends on what your mood is, and what your plan is. I am sure chirping birds can have a place in a suspense thriller if they suddenly shut up, right?
Since I will be out enjoying spring, I am leaving you with a few pics I've snapped as I drove around town. Maybe these pictures will inspire you to write about a season like this.
Happy Thursday everyone!
