Writing Inspiration

Pinterest is a wonderful way for me to create a digital inspiration board for my writing journey. I know it will help me move through writer's block and days when I judge myself harshly for what I have or have not written. My inspiration Pinterest board might even inspire another writer. That would be a double blessing!

Writing What You Know by Marion Roach Smith is a true blessing to my memoir writing process.

I repinned this pin after reading it on Kelly N's Pinterest board. It is a reminder of why ebooks are the wave of the future. I still think the publishing of physical books will remain.

I adore, a social networking community for women writers. I was inspired by a recent blog post: Want to Write Memoir? Let Me Introduce Myself and My Manifesto. Maybe We can Help. Posted by Marion Roach Smith. Smith's Writing What You Know: Realia book saved me from myself during my memoir writing process in 2010. I learned so much from her memoir writing book. She always inspires me to get out of my head and write from a place of authenticity.
