Write Now

Photo by Kurt Hutton

"Inspiration is wonderful when it happens,
but a writer must develop an approach for the rest of the time...
the wait is simply too long."
---Leonard Bernstein

Right now I have the urge to write now. But I'm gazing through two little windows--the one on my computer screen which looks blank and dull (just how I'm feeling,) and the other is my window of time before three little girls arrive at the crack of dawn for Oma Day with expectations of "Tivities!" and "Tea Parties!"

So, because my inspiration is taking simply too long, I'm going to direct you to somebody else's inspiration. Tiffany's blog has a great message about blogging, but is well worth exploring beyond the first page. She's a friend in the making. I was introduced to Tiffany, by Marta. On today's post she lists many of her other favorites places to visit. But I'm actually linking you to one of my favorite series by mwrites: her writing school!

Visit these links and I think you'll be re-enthused about why we love to blog, and how it makes a positive difference in our lives and those around us.

Then you can join me to wait for inspiration to fill our hearts, souls, and computer screens with wisdom and humor for next time. (I'll be needing a handful of dark chocolate Lindor Balls and a little coke, if you're really coming.)

Oh dear. I am literally blushing. This is my favorite part of blogging--discovering talented new friends like yourself! Thanks for the mention.

Some days my muse is off and running. Today it's a tad frazzled but I've a list I've begun keeping with ideas. We'll see what crops up late tonight.

Here is a great author's thoughts about the
arduous task of writing.

"Then, rising with Aurora's light, The Muse invoked, sit down to write; Blot out, correct, insert, refine, Enlarge, diminish, interline.
