Attributes of Writers - I

Writers are a special breed. We have unique qualities that help us make music with our words. Those same qualities might also put us in the loony bin, but isn't it worth it?! So, pull up a chair, let's explore our "specialness" together through the A to Z Challenge. If we can understand our attributes as writers, we can be cured, right?                   Dawn (P.S. Thanks for stopping by. Writing is lonely and I need your company!)

A writer is..

Imaginative -    
able to come up with ideas from thin air


I get ideas from just about everywhere. Sometimes I get so many ideas I can't focus.
 
What inspires you? What's the craziest idea you've ever had?

  4. Yes, we are imaginative, alright, so why can't I think of an answer to your question? I find that little known historic facts or people inspire me to write their story...
    Happy A to Z!

  6. Taking a walk, sitting idly on the back porch, or listening to a sermon can all spark ideas for me--as you well know after editing my manuscript! LOL!

  7. Mine come from my dreams. I tend to have extremely bizarre ones, so my ideas usually present themselves there.
