May 28, 2012

An awesomely cool day today it was. Which is crazily incredible because it is Monday, and for those who know me well or have paid any attention at all to what I write, you will know that I don't do Mondays well. The Twitter hashtag of the day was #WhatWasIThinking. But, I had two good rides on the way to the training course, and one on the way home. Neither ride was long, only about 5Km each. But, it was awesome to be riding, listening to music and searching for inspiration. That's one thing I read last night...a writer (or in my case, a wannabe) must always be on the lookout for the next source of inspiration. A writer must watch people, watch nature, watch life. And from watching, the writer will learn to write about what he or she sees, because they will have experienced it. Writing something, in my humble opinion, is easier when writing from experience. That is why lots of what I write is infused with personal experience, with a healthy dose of pure fiction mixed in. I hope that once I get to putting a story or two on my site, the reader (if there will be any) will be able to feel the emotions of the character(s). But in the meantime, I will continue to search for inspiration, and work with what I already have.
