Remember when I posted about what I use to fuel my writing? No? I don’t blame you, that was over a month ago. Yikes! Where does the time go? Anyway, take a look here.
I wanted to follow up with some of the responses we received in response to that post (and to my incessant tweets).
Of course, most people said they needed their music, snacks, and a chunk of time devoted to writing.
And some could only listen to music at certain times.
Katherine Marie even wrote her own blog post as a response to our question.
My favorite response came from mariecreativity in the comments section of the original post.
I’d never heard of anyone finding inspiration via organizing things! But after reading her comment, I gave it a shot. And I have to say that there’s something oddly calming about organizing items on my desk – it slows my thoughts down and allows some inspiration to leak through. Who would have thought?!
And, lastly, Faye gave me a wonderful reminder of something that fuels my writing, but that I somehow forgot to include in the last post: word sprints!
Thanks for all your wonderful responses everyone! It’s great to hear what keeps you all writing – and to try some of it out, myself.
So, what fuels your writing? Let us know in the comments below!
