Worthy of Inspiration--by Linda P. Kozar

Beach view--Yachatz, Oregon

A little inspiration please. This was the view from our hotel room at The Fireside Hotel in Yachatz, Oregon on a family vacation. Was my imagination on overload? You bet. The wild waves and ocean mists ebbed and flowed a world of ideas in my head.

While it is true that some days or locations do coax out the very best in a writer, our imaginations can function quite well in any setting. When asked what he did to get inspired to write, William Faulkner answered, "I get inspired to write every day at 9:00 am." 

Now that's the mentality all writers need. Writing isn't something reserved for a rainy day or special location. Sure an extraordinary setting helps, but it is certainly not required to foment inspiration. A writer can write anywhere--even in a windowless room with just a desk and a chair for company. 

Fiction writers get paid to make things up. Tell me that is not the coolest job in the world.

Now quit surfing the web and get back to that laptop--it's time to write!

Linda is the co-author of Babes With A Beatitude—Devotions For Smart, Savvy Women of Faith (Hardcover/Ebook, Howard/Simon & Schuster 2009) and author of Misfortune Cookies (Print, Barbour Publishing 2008), Misfortune CookiesA Tisket, A Casket, and Dead As A Doornail, (“When The Fat Ladies Sing Series,” Ebooks, Spyglass Lane Mysteries, 2012). She received the ACFW Mentor of the Year Award in 2007, founded and served as president of Writers On The Storm, a local ACFW chapter for three years. In 2003, she co-founded, co-directed and later served as Southwest Texas Director of Words For The Journey Christian Writers Guild. She and her husband Michael, married 23 years, have two lovely daughters, Katie and Lauren and a Rat Terrier princess named Patches.
