Whether if you have a one sentence idea for a story, or maybe you're further down the path in your first manuscript - but you're looking for a way to further evolve your idea. Maybe your ideas are dried up, and you need inspiration. This episode discusses multiple ideas to get your creativity going again. It's key to always carry something with you to keep track of your ideas. SmartPhone, small notebook or journal, etc.
What's Your Why?
Writing is hard work. It takes time and discipline. The main thing that will keep you going through the ups and downs, is your WHY. Start with figuring out what that is, and refer back to it often. You may find that publishing a book isn't in alignment with your WHY. It may be journaling or blogging; or it may make complete sense to begin publishing books.
