Inspiration in a Nutshell

January 7, 2013 Round Two

Last week I was visiting my aunt and she asked me where my inspiration comes from to write.  I don’t know, but I do know one thing about it.  Quoting myself isn’t something I do often, but this one seems to resonate.  I can’t remember exactly what I said.  Something along the lines of you gotta write even when you’re not inspired.  Followed by (this is verbatim), “I have notebooks full of crap.

That is a true statement.  I’ll step back a bit, but much like playing guitar, I can only stay away for so long.  I feel better when I write and play guitar.  So why would I not do it?
