Favorite Inspirations?

Isn't it wonderful when you don't "need" inspiration? When writing comes like summer breeze on a hot day, the world is a sweet place.

What about the times you would rather have a root canal than write? When inspiration is miles away and left you standing in the middle of no where. Your muse flew the coup with your creativity and she laughed at you the whole time you were pleading for her stay.

Those days cal for desperation, don't they? Or do they? Hmmmm.... Yes, I guess they do.

What do you do? Where do your ideas come from? How do you capture your muse and make her talk? Make her write.

Is it art?


EXCUSE THE MESS HERE. What inspires me is finding a new template! I'm searching for one now so if things look mismatched or out of place, it's because I am experimenting!!

How about a few pictures?
Check out these lovely photos: Very unique and inspiring!

  1. I can definitely relate to this post. I am at the root canal point right now. I know I need to write, but inspiration is fleeting. Sometimes music inspires me, or just some really irrelevant thing that happens in my life. Thank you so much for stopping by and following my blog. It is wonderful meeting you too.

    1. You are welcome, Murees! I'm so glad you came over to visit Ink in the Book.Hope your writing gets better soon:)

  2. Haha. I love Halloween! Those pics are great. Did you do something to your blog? Or has it always been like this? haha

    1. Fun times! I always change my blog template. Some times daily!!

  3. The images are stand out and inspiring! Thanks for posting and thanks for joining The Write Game. I appreciate my followers a lot.

    Hope you'll stop by and help me in my book launch that starts today! Wish me luck.

  4. I think making regular appointments with your Muse makes her/him more likely to show up when called, and once that habit's been established, it's like muscle memory; you can go a bit without meeting up and then when you call on Muse again, it's like y'all were never apart. It's a theory, anyway. :-)

    1. Hey, my muse doesn't like regular appointments. She is stubborn and haughty and loves to give me hard time. But when she feels like talking, she is awesome:)

  5. Strangely, the acknowledgements in books always inspire me to write.

  6. Photos inspire me, too, but usually, I'm most inspired by music. Songs evoke emotions in me in a way nothing else can. Maybe it's also because in high school, my favorite songs were like religion and the singers were preachers, telling me how to live and feel and love. I always felt like the music understood me when no one else did when I was a kid - maybe the memory of that feeling is what inspires me to write.


    1. That is so true! Tonight as I watched a movie, the music was so inspiring I got an idea for a story. It's just an idea, but it was the music that inspired me!
      Thanks for stopping by, Daisy:)

Writer In Motion CP feedback

Hey beautiful guys and dolls! Here it is! My CP feedback edited story. Had a hard time with this, but I hope it makes sense. I've got a post I'm working on I plan to put up after Thanksgiving. Here ya go. Enjoy... Every morning I wake to carnival day.  Today, though, I have my key. If I don’t use it before midnight, my way of escape will gone. It’s a silver key with a twisted metal handle, a sapphire stone half moon and engraved stars. There’s a tiny inscription on the moon, but it’s so small, I’ve never been able to read it.I’ve always kept mine in my jewelry box, but today, I string it on a ribbon and tie it around my neck. My two best friends will be wearing theirs, too, and I wonder how they will escape this carnival of dreams. “What’s it for?” Cress asks as we stand in line for the swings. I run my fingertips over the entire silver surface. “I don’t know. It belonged to my grandmother,” I say. “Whatever.” She shrugs her shoulder in a dismissive way. “Have

Operation Agent Ink

UPDATE: PLEASE FILL OUT THIS QUESTIONNAIRE AFTER YOU SIGN UP. Have you ever wondered what agents were dying to find in their inbox/slush pile? There have been many times I entered a contest and not even received a comment, not even from one of the agents. Or maybe the agent was kind enough to leave a comment that simply said, "Sorry, this just isn't what I'm looking for, but I love the premise and your voice." I always walk away feeling unsatisfied. If I had known exactly what the agent wanted beyond, "YA" or "Fantasy" I might not have even entered a contest I knew I wouldn't win! Even more, I wasted a very busy agents time! Well, your time of guessing is up! OPERATION AGENT INK to the rescue! That's right! This workshop will help aspiring authors get on the list of an agent's WISH LIST! When the workshop is over, your manuscript will be ready to view by a group of AMAZING agents who are dying to see what you've wri

EVER Blog Hop!!!!!

I joined a blog hop flash writing contest with/for Jessa Russo. It's in honor of her first EVER book release. I met Jessa during the Curiosity Quills Blog hop. I have never read a ghost story, but after reading Jessa's query and first few pages and then learning more about her ghost Frankie, I was so inspired, I fell in love -with Frankie. I was so inspired, I decided to step out of my comfort zone and write a story I had never written before and never thought I would write. Or even want to write. But I did, and I did. My piece for the contest is a small part of my bigger manuscript I wrote. I had to modify and change a few things so the story would make sense, but I think it works. At least, I hope it does:) How to vote: Comment at the end of the end of this post. You must have the word "VOTE" in your comment for it to be considered valid. VOTING IS OPEN UNTIL SEPTEMBER 30TH!!!! Ready? Well, lets go! --> The Man With the Black Hood knocked
