L is for Late

Good intentions, loose plans
Hope to make it, never can
Try for order

Cannot hold it
Cannot shape it
Cannot slow the flow
And now
You are late
Though you tried
To make it so.

Day 13 – Counting down to a little bit more than Christmas

My thanks to AuntyAmo for the honour of appearing on her blog…..

I met Orna, through the glorious joys of Twitter. We’re now in a writing group together and though she’s a little busy these days with a tiny bundle she’s been blessed with, Orna still managed to add a story to the collection which I’m delighted about.

As artists in life, so many times we find ourselves seeking inspiration to create, and even on the most basic level– to produce.

What exactly is inspiration?  What causes us to feel inspired?

At first attempt, I draw a blank in my mind when trying to describe what inspiration is.  If you avoid reading the definition below…are you able to define inspiration?

I don’t know how to stick links in yet. This could be less of a steep learning curve and more of a climbing wall for me…
They say you should state why you are starting your blog in this post but as I haven’t a clue…..answers on a postcard please?
