Resourceful

Day 43 of 365:

…finding inspiration on a Friday…

I’ve been feeling an odd mixture of restlessness and boredom just lately.  Or maybe it’s laziness – I can’t quite figure it out.

My novel progress has stalled because my characters have stopped talking to me for some reason.  (Yes, they are people to me.)  The plot is still there, floating around in my head…I think I have just painted myself into a corner somehow.  It’s not writer’s block.  I don’t think it is, anyway.  I just have figure out how to wake up my characters.

Speaking of which….

So there’s this great website I recently found through Pinterest, Lady Writer.

Lady Writer is, of course, a website that aims to be resource center for writers and creatives.  It is full of inspiration and writing tools that are easy to use and constantly available.

Here’s a fun idea from Lady Writer: Writer’s Worksheets.

This is 19 topics to explore and write about that revolve around different writing styles, topics, concepts and ideas designed to stir creative juices and get your brain working.  I think it’s brilliant.

You can download the worksheets, tackle them once a week, or filter through and use them when you find your self particularly stuck for inspiration or need a kick in the rear to get your words moving.

Give it a try – I am going to.  🙂

And now, for no reason what so ever….a photo of all three of my dogs people watching through my front door….

Ellie, Miley, Ripley…

Enough for now.  Go check out Lady Writer.

Oh, and if you’re wondering what other sites/articles I go to for knowledge and writing inspiration, check out (or follow!) my writing Pinterest board, ink.

Happy Friday!
