One of the questions most, if not all authors get is, “What inspires you to write or What is your inspiration for writing?”
I would assume that question has a multitude of answers and I am no exception. So without further ado, here are my reasons as to my inspiration for writing.
In the words of my brother -in -law, “Famary” is very important to me and is one of my inspirations for writing. Thank you Jerome! My children encourage me with nearly every word. They are hilarious, loving, and goof-balls. I love every minute with them. So why are they an inspiration? They are my life’s blood. Without them I would be nothing. Looking at them every day reminds me why I write and encourages me to become better. Not only is it a way to show my children dedication, determination, courage, passion, and a love for what I do. That is exactly why I write, I love to do it.
Through my work and what I do, I can inspire others to do the same or even something different. It doesn’t matter if you like to write, you can do anything. I should know. As a young girl I was terrified to talk to people or put myself out there in any fashion. I remember one time long ago, I was about 10 at the time. My family and I were eating at McDonalds and I wanted more catsup for my fries. This was before they put the pumps in to serve yourself, so I was forced to go to the counter and ask for the packets. I was so terrified I didn’t even want to ask for something that they so readily give to their customers. Since then I have achieved a better handle over my fright and have accomplished so much. I hope that my words whether in my blog, books, or anything else encourage others to chase their dreams and goals.
Reading and writing have been a passion of mine since I was a young girl. It was a way to escape everyday life with five sisters and read about the things I loved. Eventually that love turned into a passion to write what I wanted to read. There is nothing more satisfying that writing a great story for others to enjoy.
The journey is one of the most gratifying things to come from writing. Not only the journey of your characters as they traverse the paths and obstacles you place in front of them, but also your journey as a writer. The experience of becoming an author and writer is one I wouldn’t change for the world. There may be some down days, but the good days massively out way them. I could not be happier to spend my days on the journey I have chosen.
What better way to be inspired is by your readers. Saying ‘Thank You’ to your readers will create a desire to continue providing awesome content, stories, and more. Your readers will be there for you and are what drives your business to the next story, level, course, or post. Keep them in mind as you continue your journey.
