THOUGHTS TO CHEW ON

WHAT INSPIRES US?

Storytellers are observers. We walk around wearing Coke-glass spectacles and blue-tooth hearing aids as we attempt to tune-in to the hum of humanity. If we're honest, we're usually unaware of what we're absorbing. 

Our subconscious mind sees a photo, a poem, a poster. Hears a melody. Overhears a conversation.  And then, inspiration strikes. And, off we go, crafting something that we hope to share with someone...with many someones.

Rejection after rejection with days...weeks...of whining and whispers of self-doubt don't stop us. We are hooked. Creating something worthwhile...something bigger than ourselves...something that may last beyond us...is what inspires us to keep practicing and persevering with patience and passion. What inspires us? The act of writing itself.
