Aside from writing for my other blog, I hadn’t been writing much until last week. I set a firm goal for myself, with regards to when I wanted to have my novel completed and then got to the work. I had some trouble in the beginning with a few scenes. I tried outlining and that didn’t work out for me. Instead I simply wrote down “beginning”, “middle” and “end” in my notebook and wrote down important things I want to happen. Just seeing that on paper was all the organizing I needed and it really helped to motivate me.
I’m a visual person and my writing is a visual experience for me. I see my characters and the things that happen when I write. Sometimes I like to go look at pictures, or read quotes that help inspire me.
I’ve decided to post phrases or pictures that inspire me here and the reasons behind them. Maybe they’ll help inspire you too!
I found this quote inspirational, because I am writing a love story and this one left me starry eyed.
