Do you need a little inspiration today?

Writing inspiration comes in many forms.

I’m trying Ben, I’m trying.

 Some days are easier than others.

Inspiration can get our creative juices flowing come from Memes, blogs, books, other writers, our kids or weird characters that wake us in the middle of the night. I’m talking about imaginary characters of course.

When a character waltzes in my bedroom in the dead of night I do what any reasonable writer would, I grab my trusty pad and pen to promptly scribble down the best words ever written. In the morning I bounce from bed ready to turn my late night inspired words into a fabulous award-winning scene. 

My first reaction as I try to read the gibberish is, WTF? Did a six-year-old kid scribble this on my notepad? It appears my characters enjoy tormenting me in my sleep talking about nothing. Guess I need to stop watching Seinfeld reruns before bed.

Maybe I should try meditating instead of sleeping. Hmm. 

In the meantime, you might enjoy reading this article.

How about you? What helps get your creative juices flowing?

How is your writing going?

Do you write illegible stuff in the middle of the night? Or am I the only nut out there?

Does meditating help your creativity?

What do you have cooking? Short Story, Flash Fiction or an Epic Novel?

I’d love it if you’d stop by my other locations and say “hey!” I’ll leave a light on.

  1. Meditation helps me focus. My thoughts have a tendency to scatter. I am not, in any way, shape, or form, a multitasker even though my mind sometimes acts as if it wants to be. Calming and slowing down helps me more than anything. Meditation does that for me.

      1. Meditation can seem impossible at first. Trying to just focus on each breath I take took me a while to do. Even at that, my mind wanders at times and I have to bring it back into focusing on the breathing.
