May’s Question: It’s spring! Does this season inspire you to write more than others, or not?

Thank goodness spring has sprung. These cold, cloudy days have been major downers. The longer daylight in spring often motivates many aspects of my life, including writing. 

I’m also inspired by different types of artists. Is anyone watching American Idol? I’m amazed by how much I enjoy the new season. Besides writing, creative pursuits like singing, cooking (in Chopped), and fashion design (in Project Runway) enthrall me.

Here’s a post that might interest you: Seven Ways to Build Your Writing Confidence.

Happy writing!

  1. I recently did some binge watching of Chopped and loved it and I don't even really cook. It does help to have other creative outlets for those times when the writing must is absent. Cheers – Ellen

  2. I love fashion designing! I used to draw my own designs. I was given a new drawing notebook for Christmas so I would get back into it. I need to pick up my pencil again and try out my hand with some new designs. It's a great creative outlet.

  4. Hey Ellen, the format of Chopped is a lot of fun! I know some friends who create their own mystery basket contests and that would be a riot.Alex, I hear good things about America's Got Talent but I've never tried it. Do they declare the results the same night as the performances? Idol is doing that this year and I like it.Nick, agreed! Writers find inspiration in strange places sometimes.

  6. I adore creative competition shows almost as much as I enjoy creating. It is inspiring to watch people passionate about there craft. I also think there is great synergy in creating through different mediums. I completely agree that creating in one can help inspire the other.

  7. I may or may not be addicted to Masterchef Australia. 🙂 I wish I could do what they do, and I do find it inspiring. It's also nice after a long day of writing to tune in to something that doesn't require a lot of brainpower. 🙂
