Last night, I was lurking on the twitter chat #yalitchat and everyone was talking about their inspirations. What keeps them writing through the ups and downs.
There were a lot of great things that people threw out there. One of my inspirations, and it came after I got a publishing deal, is book bloggers.
Somehow, before I started seriously writing, I wasn't aware of this huge online community of bloggers who lived, breathed, and died for books. I know, what the hell was I missing this entire time? But since then, I've got to meet and chat with lots of bloggers and I have to say, for the most part, they are the nicest, sweetest, smartest, and coolest group of people on the internet.
Not just for those reasons do I heart me some book bloggers, but also because these are the voices that get debut and unknown authors out to the masses. I didn't know that until I started my publication journey. And I don't think a lot of writers realize that either.
I just wanted to give them a shout out. We love you book bloggers!
So what is YOUR inspiration? What keeps you writing?
PS. I have a whole bunch of Half-Blood Promo cards. They are pretty and shiny and you will like to touch them. Trust me. If you want some, please email me your address to jenniferlarmentrout(at)live(dot)com.
Peace out, home skillets.
