NaNoWriMo – Finding Inspiration

I’m lacking inspiration or rather the discipline to sit down and write.  I’m feeling like a bit of a failure, which means I’m surfing the net and looking at memes like it’s my job – I’m a highly motivated person when it comes to procrastination. It doesn’t help that a new book came in the mail the other day and I’m still trying to recover from being sick – I’m tired all the time.  Regardless of my personal failings as a NaNoWriMo participant my pinterest boards have twice as many pins and I think I have seen every Grumpy Cat meme out there and I’ve caught up on nearly every show I care about that is available on Hulu.

Yet, my sudden interest in stalking news articles and all those random links to buzzfeeds that appear on Facebook, I have stumbled upon this piece of gold – Shared Worlds, Hand in Hand – a delightful collection of advice and wisdom on writing from some of the worlds most popular authors written in their own hand on their hands.

I needed that nudge, which inspired a furry of notes to myself to encourage me in my own attempts at finishing something.
