Hey all my beautiful guys and dolls!
I know it's been quiet around here. I'm so sorry! I have been swamped with things and honestly, it's been a real emotional roller coaster around my house the past few weeks!
So, today, we're talking about inspiration and how we can use it to tint our ink.
Inspiration doesn't come easy. Sometimes, I really, really have to work at it. Other times, it comes so naturally I almost feel guilty over it!
My advice: when inspiration strikes and you are on a nonstopable roll, TAKE ADVANTAGE OF IT IN EVERY WAY POSSIBLE!
When the dry spells come, and they will come sooner or later, you may wonder around, not knowing what to do or how to overcome the blank white page. When that happens, it's okay to lay down the pen and ink and rest. But don't do that for too long of a time. Resting is okay, but get out of that rut and start looking for new inspiration as soon as you can.
Places to look:
Flickr. I love looking through the photos posted there. Amazing inspiraiton abounds!
Pandora. Yay for music!
The Library. You knew that one would be on my list!
What about you? Do you have any tinted ink to share?
Have a great week. Don't forget, my new writers group will be debuting soon. We may have a short delay due to my 4yo daughter accidentally deleting some of my files, but WE ARE COMING SOON to Ink the Book!!!!!
