While the answer is different for everyone there are things that inspire us all. Taylor Swift is a Grammy winning artist. She is also a serial dater; she makes up and breaks up on a weekly basis with a new heartthrob.
As someone who has been married to the same man for almost 16 years I can’t count on the constant break-ups that come with young love to inspire me. So what does inspire me? It could be as simple as a song on the radio. My newest work in progress was inspired when my daughters best friend was singing along to the catchy yet overplayed “Call me maybe?” at the beginning of the summer. Seeing two girls that I love happy and singing the line “I threw a wish in a well,” ended up taking on a life on its own and now I three books in the progress because of a simple song lyric.
Fall is my favorite time of year. Seeing all of the changing colors sparks my imagination. Take a drive and look at the beauty around you.
could come from something as simple as a walk on the beach with someone you
love or possibly even listening to your favorite song. Reading a good book or
even people watching can inspire all of us. With social media everywhere we
look we are constantly being relegated with stories that are either
heartwarming or bizarre. Each one adds to the twisted folds of our
imaginations. So for all the writers and want to be writers (like me) my best
advice is….simply live life.
