Finish that sentence in the subject line.
Writing makes me……
What does writing do for you? Does it make you happy? Does it frustrate you? Does it make you realize something?
Define what writing does for you. Because maybe that’s where your inspiration lies. In the traditional sense, to be inspired is get that jump start, that battery boost, to run to the page and keep going.
If you can find inspiration in your work, instead of an external force, then that inspiration will never run dry. If you need to be inspired to write and you can find it in yourself – now that’s a win-win situation.
Here’s how I finish the sentence.
Writing makes me realize I do have something to say and a way to say it.
I get really tongue tied when I speak. And I’m painfully shy when it comes to small talk conversations. But when I write all that is gone because I can craft my words to an exact meaning. That feels pretty good. And it makes me want to keep writing.
