What inspires you to write? When do you find the inescapable invigoration to put pen to paper? Where are you when your greatest ideas are birthed? How is your writer’s sense quickened and stimulated? Who stirs the cogs of your brain illuminating the path that you simply must follow? Why do you do this writing thing that you do?
I really try to grasp those bursts of inspiration, and act on the impulse to release all that is bubbling up within. Sometimes with success. Sometimes not so much. Life doesn't always offer total flexibility to whim and inspiration. There are days when I look over my jottings…then to the cursor flashing before me…and pray…and look at the cursor…back to the scribbling…and pray some more. Some days the words gush like a fountain. Some days they trickle like the tiniest stream.
The important thing is to persist. Keep at it. Hear the voice and act.
We would love to get your fingers tap tap tapping right now! Let us know what inspires you! Please share any tidbits that might just encourage our readers to brave the cursor and create something magnificent!
We would also love to have you join us at our Write2Ignite! Conference 2012 – March 16-17, 2012, at North Greenville University near Greenville, SC. Details coming soon.
