Normally, I'd take this lovely writing Friday to share an inspiring quote or writing tip, but today, after reading a conversation among writers about doubt, and asking myself how exactly I do overcome the doubt during the inevitable writer low-points, I realized something: I've been writing for as long as I can remember, but really in earnest since just after college. That's going on 8 years. And I think the longest I've ever gone without a real idea I could mould and shape and work on is about six months.
The reason I keep writing is because I keep finding things I want to write about.
And if that's not something to be thankful for, what is?
Fellow writers: How do you get ideas? What's the longest you've ever gone without one in mind?
