Inspiration! What inspires me to write and create?
What are your inspirations?
The Muse who brings me ideas and the urge to write or create uses some of my life experiences, and some come from friends, readers, and things I read about which touch me.
I try to be open, which for example means I haven’t locked myself into a certain style or medium when I create art. Heck, I’ve even created cool pieces using paper hand towels from the women’s bathroom, blue ball point pens and highlighters! Here’s an article about that!

When something moves me in an article I might read, I’ll either reblog it, or write a bit about my thoughts and feelings on the subject, hoping to shed more awareness, even to give inspiration to others! Here’s my a small take on Forgiveness: https://onbecomingalemonademaker.wordpress.com/2016/03/07/forgiveness/ or here’s a great one about Freeing the Inner Prisoners in our Minds! https://onbecomingalemonademaker.wordpress.com/2015/07/21/freeing-the-prisoner-in-our-mind/
Music and musicians… okay, one of my favorites! David Bowie (RIP)… I still love Bryan Ferry! (originally of Roxy Music) https://onbecomingalemonademaker.wordpress.com/2016/03/06/dress-for-the-job-you-want-to-have/ and https://onbecomingalemonademaker.wordpress.com/2016/01/13/enjoy-some-david-bowie-here-rip/
Fellow artists or in this case, a beginner artist will inspire me to write! https://onbecomingalemonademaker.wordpress.com/2016/02/27/white-canvas-or-colored-for-starting-a-painting/
Movies… Leonardo di Caprio… I saw him in the Revenant, and then I read an article about him written by my former boss, which I just had to share! Helping raise awareness about one of my favorite non-profits is a boost! https://onbecomingalemonademaker.wordpress.com/2016/03/02/leonardo-di-caprio-a-winner-on-so-many-levels/ and a previous post where I shared all about their goodness: https://onbecomingalemonademaker.wordpress.com/2015/10/28/what-can-you-do-if-you-want-to-save-the-world/
Fellow bloggers! One article wasn’t just inspired by a fellow blogger, but she specifically requested I write it for her to share! Thank you for that! https://onbecomingalemonademaker.wordpress.com/2016/03/02/what-tools-did-i-use-to-create-the-on-becoming-a-lemonade-maker-workbook/

Reviews for my book… seems my readers are much more inspired to write to me directly to let me know how much they love my book, but they aren’t so successful at posting reviews on Amazon! *Frown* https://onbecomingalemonademaker.wordpress.com/2014/12/12/an-awesome-book-review-for-on-becoming-a-lemonade-maker/ Here’s a great review I got on Ann Livi Andrew’s site: https://onbecomingalemonademaker.wordpress.com/2015/05/07/an-awesome-review-and-interview-by-ann-livi-andrews/ Yup, my mom! https://onbecomingalemonademaker.wordpress.com/2015/01/21/your-worst-critic-turns-into-major-fan/ I’ve tried to explain this phenomenon: https://onbecomingalemonademaker.wordpress.com/2015/01/12/missing-or-rejected-reviews-on-amazon/
So, here’s quite a few of my inspiration triggers! Not to mention that there’s days where I’ll just put up an inspiration just for the heck of it!
