Get Inspired

Trying to get inspired is proving to be more tough than I thought it would be.  I’ve been exploring different television shows and movies attempting to stimulate my mind visually.  Reading new books in any topic to spark my imagination.  I have even engulfed myself in decorating our new home to get my creativity flowing again.  The good news is, my mind has flooded with ideas.  The bad news, I don’t know what to do with them all. 

I am definitely well aware of my interests, but I am having difficulty deciding how to focus them.  I love the entertainment industry, enjoy the evolution of fashion, follow current trends, I even did stand up comedy once.  Now, how do I mix this with writing?  Do I try to become a critic?  Write analytical pieces on the latest happenings?  It would be opinionated and hopefully quick witted.  How about a book?  I also love design and organization topics.  I am an excellently smart shopper and could provide insightful tips on how to purchase items that are not only right for you, but how to save money doing it.  Then again, I have quite a bit of accumulated advice about how to live a happy life.

Where do I go from here?  Gather multiple writings about multiple topics?  With the social media world developing so fast, I could use that to promote my writings.  My biggest question is, how to find a singular direction?  And quite frankly, do I have to decide singularly?  How do you break into an industry that requires experience and extensive credentials?  With any luck, I’ll find an unlocked door to stick my foot in.  I truly believe that everyone should be able to do what they love.  Every person should be able to wake up in the morning and look forward to working.

  1. I know exactly what you mean, I am trying to write some articles for Trade Journals, just to break into Freelance Writing, and I am stumped. I have about 1,000 words of one article done, and all the Journals I have looked at in Writer’s Market, what the article to be at least 2,000 words long… But hey we can do it. I have faith, just write, grab a copy of Writer’s Market if you don’t have one yet, and go for it. Good Luck, I know you can succeed.
