Prompting Yourself To Write 37
OK, if you say so, and many of you have, over a decade, for which I, Nikita, and Elvira, can't say enough thanks for your support, encouragement, and kindness. :-D
A new friend in writing, met thru the Platform Building series in April, Amanda Socci, is responsible for the subject of this Writing Prompt.
She's also given me other food for thought, the last few days, but that's for another time...
Define yourself, or your writing work, as "Inspirational".
What is your own unique definition of "Inspiration"?
In what way are you inspirational?
What type of inspiration do you write about?
I began writing online in 1998, and became a blogger in 2002.
My writing, has been more than creative types of fiction, but also about sharing my opinions, interests, and hobbies, the news, what others are blogging about, and the everyday events of my life journey, and that of my Cats (Bloggers in their own right, as regular readers know ) the ups, and downs, good times, and bad.
The word "Inspiration" is defined as "The process of being mentlly, and/or emotionally, stimulated to do, or feel, something, especially to do something creative.
I can't write a definition any better than that in the dictionary. :-D
I've been so affected to do a lot of things in my personal, and creative, life, the past 14 years, and I've been told by numerous readers of my work, and the work of my Cats, and those familiar with how I've changed my life, the things I've done, and poems, stories, essays, and opinions written on our blogs have affected them in many ways.
I've had bicyclists tell me that my old Bike Blog led them to start their own, doing things with their sites that I never could afford to do, or never had the knowledge, or connections to attempt.
I've had people tell me our poetry affected them deeply, and some say our efforts caused them to want to try their own hand at it.
I've had people tell me that my successful genealogy research afftected them, or caused them to keep up on their own efforts.
I've had people tell me our journalism has led them to learn new things, our personal opinions, and personal essays, deeply affect them, and made them think.
I've had people tell me that they deeply appreciated our reviews of their published, or filmed work, or their writing on their blogs.
My Cats, & I, can't claim to write about any single type of "Inspiration", if we find a story, a person, or animal, or subject, mentally, or emotionally, stimulating enough, then we always seem to find the words to share whatever it is on our blogs.
