A Writer, a few limes and ideas

All people, no matter what their passion, profession or part in life, tend to burn out from time to time. So they must replenish themselves and seek out inspiration from the world around them. I find this to be true of myself and I often go foraging for something that will spark a thought, quicken my pulse or give me the courage to create.

So I'm dedicating my writing blog to things I find inspiring and my thoughts on my creative process, in the hopes I can share that magical touch of the muse with other fellow seekers.

Today, I give you limes.


Writing is not always easy. Often working with an idea is like working with a lime. Lush green and so alive, yet hard and unyielding at first touch. You have to massage the idea like you would a lime, make it more workable. Then you have to squeeze every bit of juice out it, fish out the seeds (rubble), and mix in other ingredients (or ideas). In the end you have limeade or margaritas. Either way, cheers! As a writer you always have choices.

So what's your choice? Limeade or margarita? Well, have a glass of it, visit, and I hope you come again.

  3. I usually cringe when I see a black background for the print is usually very hard to read, especially if your eyes are tired from staring at a computer all day. I was pleased to see you used white lettering and not lime green or some other hard to read color. Love the site. Well done. You should feel very proud of your achievement!
