Erin Le Clerc grew up with seven siblings, three ghosts, two eccentric parents, and a multitude of animals in a crumbling abandoned hospital in the suburbs. This vastly informed her imagination! She’s also tremendously proud of her Australian “bush heritage,” which she inherited from her Nana Maureen – Australia’s Champion Swiss Yodeller in the 1940s. Erin spends her “9 to 5” working as a psychologist, and her “5 to 9” writing inspirational stories filled with adventure and fun.

This s…moreI read something interesting recently, which said, essentially, writers need to be in a constant state of inspiration to get their writing out. This strongly resonated with me, and explained why, instinctively, I search out inspirational quotes about writing, look for books to read that inspire me on my own writing journey, why I am most motivated while participating in writing courses/challenges, and why I've joined multiple communities who write, to keep me company as I go. Everyone is different. This is the way that works for me.

One of the most useful things I've done recently, though, was sign up for a 31-day idea generating challenge - StoryStorm by Tara Lazar - where I committed to writing down 30 ideas for stories over the month of January. I absolutely loved the challenge in the end (I began it thinking : THIS WILL BE IMPOSSIBLE!), because what it's triggered for me is this constant state of noticing and jotting down stories, scenes, characters, title ideas that come to me. I now have more than 30 ideas that I can play with and work on and grow, which makes me SO excited for the year of writing ahead.

Being inspired is like exercising a muscle, which permissions your brain to send you ideas, because it sees you're open to them!(less)

For older writing, LM Montgomery, Eva Rice, JK Rowling, Dodie Smith, Elizabeth Peters... the list goes on! In the end, every writer seems to end up a sum of all the books they've loved and absorbed!(less)
