Inspiration To Write

Here's a great poster one of my readers shared on facebook. It's sure to give you a smile and some inspiration. I still like the one at the bottom of this post best, but this one is pretty good, too. Being a former Girl Scout, it triggered a lot of memories as well as offered some incentive to get busy and write.

How about you? What inspires you to write? Is it seeing posters like these or attending writing seminars or reading a new book on the craft of writing? Is it being out and about and seeing a person who would make a great character in a story? Is is the pressure of needing to bring something you've written to a critique group meeting? 

For me, it's all of the above. One other thing that often inspires me is seeing something that triggers a memory from way back. When the memory comes flooding back, I sometimes think I really need to write about that. The key here is to do it immediately. Strike while the iron is hot! 

Now, for that other poster that I find so inspiring. You've seen it here before and most likely will again.
