Writing inspirations while keeping the Bum in Chair

As I continue my quest to finish these last few chapters of CREED, the blog will be a bit light this week. But here are a few places that have captured my attention as I head toward "The End":

Shannon Hale discusses choosing your path as a writer here.

Molly Blaisdell, always an advocate of Seizing the Day, talks about fear as a part of the writing process.

Kirby Larson confesses her online purchases...er, research riches.

Sara Zarr wonders if she, like many authors, writes about recurring themes. I wonder that, too, as I finish up my second novel and see many similar ideas emerging, which I remarked upon when interviewed by Chris Eboch for an upcoming Children's Writer article.

And if you haven't already stopped by CuppaJolie for Monday Moments, check out her thoughtful writing prompts here.

Here's to keeping our Bums in Chairs this week and turning out brilliant words.


  1. Here's to you getting your chapters finished and me living through the writing of my synopsis. Whew, I'm stressed out about that thing too.

    Cheers! :)

  2. Thanks, Robyn! Good luck on your synopsis, too!
