What Inspires Me

I am inspired by listing all my writing activities

  1. Some Kind of Wonderful Awards SkoW  I have really good memories of participating in SKoW, chatting with judges, and nominating fictionpress authors/stories each round. I got nominated a few times and recorded a session on SkoW Radio.

2. Tough and Dirty TaD Newsletter  The newsletter had writing prompts for writers to turn in submissions. Too bad TaD stopped after its 3rd newsletter.

  • Writing Prompt #2 based on the song “My Fix” by Sunrise: Runner-Up

3. Favorite quotes

  • When it comes to life, we spin our own yarn, and where we end up is really, in fact, where we always intended to be.  Julia Glass
  • . . . when it comes down to it, that’s what life is all about: showing up for the people you love, again and again, until you can’t show up anymore. Rebecca Walker
  • Never forget what you are, for surely the world will not. Make it your strength. Then it can never be your weakness. George R.R. Martin
  • I decided it is better to scream. Silence is the real crime against humanity. Nadezhda Mandelstam

Make your own “what inspires me” list by noting 

  • poetry/fiction written (completed or not)
  • pieces you have submitted to contests (it’s about getting the courage to submit)
  • nominations and awards
  • writing for newsletters
  • online and in-person groups participated in (include NaNo write-ins!)
  • all drafts of your query letter to see growth (think 100th version of a resume)
