Hail fellow writers.
What holds you back from writing, from doing your best? Procrastination? Fear of criticism? Writer's block?
It's daunting staring at a blank piece of paper, or a blank computer screen, or even taking on those darn edits.
What helps you push through the difficult times?
What inspires you?
Just to name a few of mine:
*A brisk walk in the park, or around the neighborhood, if I'm short on time.
*A drive through the mountains. Who isn't inspired by nature?
*Sitting by a stream, by a lake, by a rushing waterfall, or if I'm super lucky, the beach.
*Taking pen and paper outside, under my favorite tree.
*Getting out of the house, breathing the fresh air!
PS Anything will do when the weather is turbulent: library, mall, or even the car at a favorite spot.
