Who/What Inspires You to Write?

Another simple question… What gets you to the keyboard?

Is there someone who you look up to or model?

Perhaps someone you know personally motivates you to get up and write, or maybe it’s a well-known writer.

Let’s hear from you.

  1. I like to think of my blog as a blend of a personal blog and a self-development blog. I share advice to people struggling with something I once struggled with. Or people going through a phase I passed sometime ago.

    It’s these people that inspire me to write. I look at them and wonder if things wouldn’t become much easier for them if I gave them some tips to overcome whatever they’re struggling with. I believe things would, so I write.

    Can I ask who or what inspires YOU to write?

  2. So many things that I’m not even sure who/what exactly:
    People around me whom I know that some of what I write can help.
    Christian Mihai
    Bodgan (at Pointless Overthinking)
    A lot of the great writers whose works I fell in love with (too many of them to list here)

  3. I am 70 and life has been a rollercoaster. A memory comes to mind, and I have to write about it on my blog. Personal stories and simple times of the past rather than a particular writer stir my soul. Thank you for your sharing your blog.

  4. You can guess my answer because you’ve visited my blog often enough to know: my greatest inspirations come from life, nature, and my relationships with family and God. My sanctuary each morning is my ah-hah place.
