Friday Writing Inspiration: The Ideas Keep Coming

Normally, I’d take this lovely writing Friday to share an inspiring quote or writing tip, but today, after reading a conversation among writers about doubt, and asking myself how exactly I do overcome the doubt during the inevitable writer low-points, I realized something:

I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember, but really in earnest since just after college. That’s going on 8 years. And I think the longest I’ve ever gone without a real idea I could mould and shape and work on is about six months.

The reason I keep writing is because I keep finding things I want to write about.

And if that’s not something to be thankful for, what is?

Fellow writers: How do you get ideas? What’s the longest you’ve ever gone without one in mind?

One thought on “Friday Writing Inspiration: The Ideas Keep Coming

  1. This is something I always wonder myself. I think I have so many ideas but I wonder if I actually sat down to work on each one if they would be really very good at all. I tend to always wait for the ideas that keep me up at night the I know I have something to work with. That’s probably a bad habit now that I think about it ha-ha!
