Inspiration by Iris Carden

Writing is funny.

Sometimes I’m overwhelmed with ideas. Sometimes I think it would be great if I could just go and grab a can of inspiration from the pantry. (My pantry may be well enough stocked to outlast the apocalypse, but it doesn’t have that.)

This week I’ve been struggling, ideas have been hard to find. I haven’t been handling my reduction in steroids very well (increased pain and fatigue, poorer balance). That’s led to struggling a bit with writing, and the ideas haven’t been coming easily.

I hope my fellow writers, and my fellow lupus patients, have been having a better week than me.

Writers looking for inspiration might like these sites which have writing prompts:
