Finding Inspiration



What’s your Inspiration?

Managing a blog is fun most of the time, overwhelming some of the time and frustrating from time to time. Inspiration is necessary to keep the creative juices flowing.  We’ve all had the dreaded cursor blink back at us from a white screen while we will it to put words in front of us.

Inspiration is often unexpected.  The best tip I’ve read about capturing an idea, is to carry a notebook with you.  When you are out and about, inspiration will strike and chances are by the time you get back to your laptop, the idea will be gone.   Recently this tip came in handy when I was stuck in a traffic jam.  I wrote down ideas for the A to Z Challenge, as I waited for the traffic to start to flow again.

Of course, the Ruff Talk girls bring inspiration. A certain behavior, or an antic that leads to a photo op and an idea for another post emerges.

One more note about inspiration – comments!  Isn’t it just the greatest feeling when another blogger leaves a comment on your blog? Thanks to the bloggers that have left comments on Ruff Talk – it’s truly inspiring!

What inspires you to blog?

    Yes, it is a great feeling when bloggers care enough to leave a comment on your blog, but even more lovely it is when you discover that someone out there in the big wide internet, who is not a blogger, has read something from you and feels encouraged. They usually leave a small one or two line comment that lets you know what you wrote touched their souls. That is then an honor. And it will boost your writing enorm.

      Agree Patricia – it is the thought that someone stopped by and found value in our written word. Thanks for visiting Ruff Talk(and leaving comments)
