I remember commenting on a writer’s group on Facebook: “Sometimes, you have to be your own muse.” Reading your article, I realized YOU are your own muse! A writer, although sometimes s/he writes when s/he gets external inspiration, has to motivate her/himself to pick that pen and paper (or computer) up and write.
Thank you so much! Did you know I saw this in the middle of my writing a purpose statement for graduate school? This helped open the floodgates :)
