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?

Do you know the visibility of your website?

Want to know how your blog is doing?

Well, there is an easy, great way to assess, improve and create a better website.

After reading the post from Story Empire Blog below, I followed one of the links provided (WEBSITE GRADER) and here is what I discovered about my blog.

Yay, at last, I managed to get the security part right. But let’s look a little deeper.

First up Performance, grade 22/30.

Hmm, looks like my HTTP requests need to come down. But not bad.

Uh Oh, got an X. I must confess that JavaScript and CSS stuff always leaves me scratching my head. But this weekend I will read up a little on it. After all who wants an X?

Alright, alright! 30/30 on Mobile! Moving on…

To SEO. Another scary, confusing acronym that totally baffles me. No wonder my website scored 15/30 AND received a big fat X in two areas.

Page Titles, I can handle. Meta descriptions, those may take a while to figure out.

Using the website was super easy. But now I’ve more work to do. The WEBSITE GRADER then gave me a list of suggestions to improve my website.

Guess what I’m doing this weekend? 

The article also has a couple of other suggestions and links you may find interesting, especially if you are new to blogging. So you might want to read the entire post.
