I hear a number of writer’s ask about how to get inspired or keep inspiration. I think they’re confusing inspiration with motivation.
We are inspired by the things around us, an odd phrase, a beautiful scene, a great idea. The motivation comes to write it down. You must keep motivated long after the inspiration abates.
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is where dedication comes in.
With dedication to the craft, even when motivation and/or inspiration fail you – you will not fail.
Inspiration is just the beginning! Stay dedicated. Motivation will follow.
