What's Your Secret?

We all know writing well is not easy, being published is even harder, which is why I thought I'd ask what your secret was for staying motivated.

Mine? Well, it's pretty simple - I read and blog. Seriously, that's about it. When I don't feel like writing, I check out what other writers have to say. Generally I'll find motivation in something they've said. Same goes for reading or even walking into a book store. I see all those books and think if they did it, then so can I. With that being said, a big thank you to all of you who write and blog everyday. Keep the inspiration and motivation coming!

Now tell me, what's your secret?

My lack of motivation is directly related to the energy drain I've been experiencing because of my lovely twins. Hopefully, they'll have a good day today. *crossing fingers*

I'll cross my fingers for you too. Kids are hard work, but twins? Bless you!

I find little things that inspire me throughout the day- words I like, a line of dialogue that pops into my head. I write them down and then force myself to sit down to write, even if I don't want to. Then I find inspiration for a scene that sparks from those little notes.

And I read blogs too!

Lately--it's been Diana. It's nice having a cheerleader who motivates you.
