Finding Inspiration For Writing

29 May

003Welcome back to the writing site that never ends. I do take breaks, but even then my mind is always hopping.

I went to see Star Trek last weekend.  Enjoyed it…but the point I’m getting to is this….before the movie started there were previews, and one preview was for a new Superman movie coming out….and the opening line of the preview was….”what if there was a boy….”

Now, the reason I mention that is because hearing that line gave me an idea for a new article, an article I posted today on HubPages called “What If There Was A Girl.”

I happen to love it….it is almost poetry and I think the message is an important one.


Inspiration will and can and does come from everywhere, but we must be open to it.

I hear of writer’s block.  Although on an intellectual level I understand it, for the life of me I don’t know what it must be like. My mind is exploding with ideas.  As soon as I find a way to extend the day by six more hours I will inundate the market with new works. J


“Quantity produces quality. If you only write a few things, you’re doomed.” ~Ray Bradbury “The way you define yourself as a writer is that you write every time you have a free minute. If you didn’t behave that way you would never do anything.” ~John Irving

And what’s the point?  You need to write….and then write some more….and then in your spare time, you need to write. J


I want to say a special thank you to Alex and Lizzy, two writers from HubPages who have taken it upon themselves to set up a new website for H.O.W. (Humanity One World) and also an online store where people can buy H.O.W. shirts and others products.  I greatly appreciate their efforts in helping me with this undertaking, and I greatly appreciate the earlier efforts of Mark in constructing the first website.

Writers helping writers.  As I have often said, writers should not be in competition with each other but should instead be a constant source of support for each other.


Writer’s Digest is having a $8.88 sale on a number of writing guides. Go take a look right here.

Take a look…inspired?  Let your mind relax…go back in time…what memories does this picture resurrect?


Busy day today. I am finishing my editing job for a customer today, and that will free up some time needed to tackle some new projects and some old projects, like my H.O.W. novel.  I am excited to return to those labors of love.

See you tomorrow. Have a productive and creative day!
