Inspiration-If it doesn't knock, build a door.

One of the first inclinations I had that made me feel like a writer was when I found inspiration hitting me at the most inconvenient times. Like 2 o'clock in the morning for example. And you just can't shake the feeling that you have to get this out or it will be lost forever in the abyss of your mind.

So I get up out of bed and drag myself to my computer and log in to Blogger (okay...and Facebook) and then I stare at a blank screen for 15 minutes. Alas, it has escaped me again. Blogging is so much different from the writing I do in privacy and the writing I was taught to do.

I sometimes find it much harder to write on a blog than anywhere else. I want to be personable, not personal. I want to be professional, but not stiff. When I'm writing an article or a paper, I know how it is supposed to written, there are clearly defined rules in the world of professional writing. And then I just let my heart pour out with a pad and paper. No one will see it if I don't want them to, and that's the benefit. So how is one to gain inspiration for this new world of writing that wasn't taught in school?

I try to draw my inspiration from every aspect of life. From a fun-filled day on a whale watching zodiac cruise on the Atlantic ocean to reading Celtic fairytales with my daughter to a TV commercial, I'm always looking for something to inspire me. But at the same time, I am not so naive that I sit around watching TV or browsing the web for inspiration. Part of it needs to be organic, but there's no harm in helping things along. Like meditating, walking, jamming, however you get your fire lit.

There are many opposing views of what inspiration is, but I don't think the definition is as important as the outcome for the individual.

Tonight I was inspired by the memory of a favorite quote of mine,

"Nothing ruins the taste of peanut butter like unrequited love"

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
