Inspiring me today

Posted on March 17, 2014

Sometimes, a writer just needs to drop the words for a minute. I’ve written thousands already and have thousands more to write as the week goes on. And so I’m bringing you one of my irregular pictorial posts. Things that are inspiring me today:

My garden

    I can see why your garden is inspiring you! Today I’m inspired that people took time out of their day to listen to my first author talk. Their warmth and friendliness was lovely. And watching your ever increasing word count!!

      Well done Jennifer! The first one is always the hardest.

    Love those photos! Outside inspired me today. Walking with the kids, watching them play, watching bub go down the slide by himself for the first time. Sheer joy! Loved it.

      Sounds like a great day!

    Haven’t been too inspired today but just keeping on. I’m sure it will hit me at 10pm tonight when I’m trying to sleep. Love the garden shots and maps – it reminds me of mapping when I was at school. Now I’m going to bookmark Anna’s writing prompts for some inspiration for later. Thanks!

    Booking my accommodation for NYC later in the year and wandering the streets via Google Maps. Inspired and excited!

    Blogs. Today I am finding some fabulous new blogs through Link ups and what not. It is great to get new ideas and inspiration from them.
