That being said, I realized I haven’t done much in the way of writing lately. At first, over the weekend, I didn’t want to. There’s been so much going on – we just bought and moved into our first house (two weeks ago!), so we’re still unpacking and setting up shop. I’m also in the last three weeks of school for us, and on top of that I’m leaving my current school to go be a high school librarian in another district next year. It’s amazing all the stuff you have to do, and all the things you collect in a classroom after 8 years.
To try and help get myself back on track, I’m starting up an old idea – a writing inspiration post each week. I’ll post it here and on FB and Instagram, with the hashtag #writinginspiration. I may not always include the excerpt I write based on the prompt, but I will do my best to post the prompt each week. I hope that you will share if you decide to post anything inspired by the prompts, and feel free to share the blog post!
Inspiration and the act of writing are, for me, linked. I feel more inspired to write if I make myself write everyday. Even if all that comes out is total garbage. It’s so hard to get back into the groove after a break from writing, so my new goal is to keep a word count going every day. Right now, I’m just not into any of my current WIP. Maybe this will help!
So here's your #writinginspiration post for today:
