I often use Todd Henry’s questions when I am coaching and when I am reflecting with fellow writers. Here are my answers for today.
What are you working on?
I am working on my novel in progress for NANOWRIMO (National Novel Writing Month). I am 45, 000 words in. I can see the finish line of 50,000 by Friday. It has been so much easier this year with the support of my Storyaday group of writers.
What is inspiring me?
I have been reading Kathy Fish’s flash fiction. I really would like to get into one of her flash fiction workshops. I will try when she offers it again. It fills up quickly.
My husband and I watched a documentary about Bill Murray and how he starts random acts of fun. It was inspiring to keep myself open and available.
My Storyaday writer group is inspiring me.
Two Writing Teachers is always inspiring for teacher blogs and prose.
Where do I need prodding?
Right now, I don’t need any external motivation. I am internally motivated for the moment.
