I've Been Inspired!



The beginning of the year I was exhausted. And started to think, maybe kicking out three manuscripts was a tall order. Maybe, I didn't want to write for a small while. You know take a break, evaluate if this is something I need to keep doing - for myself.

INSPIRATION COMES IN THE MOST OBVIOUS PLACES

Then my 10yr old daughter came to me with her manuscript - YEP, she had written five full pages of her story. She loves animals and wrote a story about a baby lion named Theo who wanted to unite the species of his land.

OMG! This is why I write - not just for me, but for myself and others. My little girl told me, "I want to write like you mommy. Maybe you can help me with my story."

MORE ... and MORE

Then I get an email from one of my writer friends, telling me she needs me to motivate her to finish her book.

MORE and MORE

Then it came ... another idea for a series. And the promise to my little girl to help her write her story.

AND IT BEGINS AGAIN ... inspiration

FIND Yours ... and share :-D

That is so cool! I love hearing things like that. My son came home from his first year of college and announced that he'd written 45 pages of a novella. I read it and it's really inventive. So, I know exactly how you feel!

I love how the little bits develop into one huge mass of inspiration.

Love it! It is amazing where inspiration can be found. It is always nice when it pops up when we need it most. I think it is fabulous that your daugher inspired you- and you obviously inspired her! Awesome!

I think the act of following out hearts desire is inspirational to others. But its always really awesome when our own inspiration is rejuvenated too.
And your daughter sounds adorable :)

Isn't inspiration wonderful, especially when it comes from such a lovely source?

You are one lucky lady/writer.
