IWSG May, 2023 - What inspires you?
When you are working on a story, what inspires you? This is the question of the day and optional. For me, the answer is simple.
It's that time again to gather together as writers and blog about our writing insecurities (and achievements). The following post was written for the IWSG monthly blogging event created by author Alex J Cavanaugh. Alex's awesome co-hosts for this month are Joylene Nowell Butler, Ronel Janse van Vuuren, Meka James, Diane Burton, Victoria Marie Lees, and M Louise Barbour!
Most everyone who reads my blog knows I write out of habit, which is a good thing. I write each morning after "Millie" duties and with my coffee. I like to write, but the practice of writing is habit, one I started a long time ago. Sometimes, I’m inspired, sometimes not, but I still write.
So what inspires me? Two simple things. I am inspired by reading and sometimes watching movies. If either is good writing, I'm inspired. Secondly, hanging out with other writers online (blogging) and in person (with a writer's group) inspires.
