This is a call out to my fellow blog stars.
I bow down in awe to your commitment , enthusiasm and inspiration for such read worthy blogs and the regularity in which you post.
I’m a sinner in the blog world, I have a sudden urge to blog then 3 months later pop back again to say hi… I struggle to find things to talk about to interest and delight a fickle audience where better reading is just a click away.
So I call to all ye noble bloggers who are doing it right…
Where do you get your inspiration?
When is your best time to blog?
Where are you when you blog?
And do you do it through computer? Laptop? Phone?
It’s just something I found myself wondering whilst scrolling through a multitdue of fantastic blogs and writing and thought I could do it if I spent less time on Facebook and Candy Crush….!
Is discipline the key?
Ok so it wasn’t a picture but a song that formed a picture in my head…
Lily Allen ‘Somewhere only we know’
The John Lewis Christmas ad… at first it was the usual that’s sweet, it’s Christmas, it’s coming whether we like it or not and another clever marketing ploy by a retail chain to get us to part with our hard earned cash in their store.
But the song played is now a chart topper and is invading our airwaves like flu germs on a bus…
I’m the type of person who has to find meaning in a song in order to like it… hence why when ‘What does the fox say’ was all over Facebook I had no clue what was going on until yesterday when it was played in the top forty charts!
So driving home today, the song came on and I actually like it, it has meaning, so I turned up the volume and really listened, I have heard it is making people cry, making people excited for Christmas and reconfirming their love for animals…
For me? It made me push my foot down and race up to complete my final chapter of my book… I still have three or four chapters left to write to tie it all together but I was just overwhelmed with this eureka moment and I properly felt like an author as rather that relating the song to my own life, I thought of my characters and I got so excited at the thought of my readers face when they read that chapter. It also gave me a kick to get it finished before Christmas so it’s still relevant in peoples minds 😉
After the overwhelming support from friends and family…
I’m starting to think this could work, I’m getting very involved in my story and I want to share it with everyone, I cant wait to have a finished product!
I’m being brought on an emotional rollercoaster with this story and It’s coming from my imagination I can only hope I have the same effect on future readers.
If I knew I’d get such satisfaction from writing Id have started this long ago… who knows this could be the start of a very special friendship, between me, the written word and my readers….
Assuming I have any and they enjoy… that is 😉
