Happy new week everyone. What inspires your writing? For me it’s either getting to a point in a new story that I can’t wait to write, or sitting somewhere with a beautiful view. Just taking in the scenery is often enough to lift my mood and make me want to start writing. If you are feeling frustrated with finding time to write, then taking a walk and a notepad can refresh your mojo enough to get back to your work flow when you return.
I carry a notepad everywhere and often jot down characteristics of people I see when I’m wandering around and I like to note clothing, stance, how people use their hands to express themselves and other details like that. It comes in handy when I’m forming characters in my mind. Although they are often jumping up and down and introducing themselves before I’ve finished the previous manuscript, so I have to hold them back and tell them to be patient.
I hope you find some amazing new books to read this week!

I love this post, Lizzie. I can get inspired to write a story from most anywhere, but I do get inspired a LOT from story songs. I just love turning a three minute bare-bones story song into either a short story, novella, or novel.
That sounds like fun! I’ve never heard of that before.
Great quotes, Lizzie:) I used to go observe people with a notebook. It’s been a long time. Thanks for the reminder!
You’re welcome Denise.
