Wendesday on my personal blog, I talked about inspiration. Not where we as writers find it to enhance our writing, but how we writers can inspire others. The post--feel free to read it HERE--takes the reader through a parent/teacher conference I had for my youngest CJ, age 7. Unbeknownst to me, the little bugger had been observing mom rather closely. So closely, that he was becoming quite the inspired little storyteller at school.
Funny thing, his secretly found mommy inspired work gave me more than I'd given him. I gained the sweetest inspiration and confidence in my decision to be a writer to date.
I've talked about how music, other writers, books, and nature inspire me to write and want to be a better writer. But this is the icing on the cake for any writer, for anyone in any profession: To know that your work has inspired another to want more, to explore life, to desire to be more and discover themselves is a gift of inspiration no other can match.
Here's a little sample of CJ's writing. It came from a group of his writings. Mind you, he's seven years old.
|Have to share: Marden's is a discount salvage store. I love how he's observant. hah.|
Who have you inspired? It can be during anytime in your life. This is a humble forum, so it's okay. You can tell us.
