It was simply me taking a hobby and making it into something more. I am so fortunate to get to do two things I love! I am often inspired by music/songs. Sometimes it's just one line that gets me thinking. I wonder what would make someone feel that way or what happened to get people to this point? Before you know it, I have a whole story outlined! I do have Pinterest boards for everything I write. You can follow me there by following this link - https://www.pinterest.com/vastine7. (less)

I might read or spend time with my family or even clean the house! Giving my brain a break from being creative is usually the best medicine. Other times, writing something completely different can help. A short story or maybe just an outline for a new idea can help me break the spell I sometimes feel under when I have writer's block! The key is remembering not to give up but to go back and keep writing, even if you have to scrap somethings.(less)
