Writers are always asked “Where do you get your inspiration?” Actually, everyone has at least one story in them. Whether they choose to tell the story or not is up to them. The question is really “What keeps you inspired to write?”

Like everyone, the writer who lives by their work also has a story to tell…and then another and another and… But there can come times when facing that computer is hard.

Clothes, education, Game Boys, Valium for parents, etc.

Yeah, surprise, surprise! Authors have the same expenses everyone else have…they just don’t get paid as regularly. And eventually, they want the end of their career to be like others.

What inspires you? Today, this is mine.

Yum! Yum!
