My Monday Inspiration

In no particular order, these are the things that have inspired me over the last month.  I missed Insecure Writers Support Group earlier this month, but I still wanted to contribute.  It seems like I spend a lot of time doing projects with work or with my family.  That said, it's hard to fit my writing projects in sometimes.  And I am a writer dammit!  Anyway, I saw this found it inspiring.


Moving on to other things that have inspired me recently. I like all types of music for writing, but one band I admire is Foster the People. To say that I love this song is an understatement, but what's even better than the tune is the video. Remember, Kill Bill when Tarantino added the animation part to the film?  Between the story and the motion graphics, this video reminds me of it and is pretty psychedelic video too.  Feeling inspired yet?

Lastly, I saw this on Friday and it made me smile.  There's something about Loki, isn't there?
What types of things do you turn to to get inspired to write every week?

Okay Loki.  I'll get right on that. (Source

Got any thing planned this week?  What about this month?  Any book releases, blog hops, vacations or anything else planned?  Have a wonderful week.

Ha! Now that I quit my teaching job, writing is the only work I've got. Somehow, instead of providing me with more time, it's provided me with more guilt. I feel guilty every moment I'm not writing/promoting/planning for writing or speaking events ...

Maybe I need to establish office hours?

That's an awesome quote, and totally describes my life.

Currently revising and trying hard to be patient with the process.

Great, catchy tune. The video makes me want to pluck my eyebrows. Yes, I said, "pluck".

I'm inspired knowing that maybe, one day I might write somewhere near as good as Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet superstar!

You mentioned blog hops. Arggghhhhh! make them STOP! :)

Whew I just got done with a cover reveal, but I'll be prepping for a blog tour for the next month...until it's time to move again. *sigh* Life keeps us busy, eh? I need Margaret Laurence to come move me so I can focus on the real work. ;)

Mina, that video was freaky and cool all at once! My problem this month is trying to settle down and write the book due under contract but all I want to do is Boing Boing with 2 books coming out in July and August.I do realize these are good problems! Off to boing some more and then strap myself into my launch chair. I hope you find more time to write! Setting the alarm clock for 4:30 works wonders - oh, that and some super sized coffee! :)

Loki's awesome - easily the best character in the Marvel movies.

So glad you're joining us for the Coffeehouse, Mina! I look forward to your post.
