NaNoWriMo Inspiration Kickoff

A little encouragement can go a long way.  National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is upon us for November 2009, and many writers are settling in for a healthy 30 days of Butt In Chair, Fingers On Keyboard (BICFOK).

If you’re a writer in need of a little inspiration, here are two easy places to stop in for a (quick) fresh, hot cup of time-to-get-writing:

~ Words from Wednesday ~

Writer, editor, and home cook Luisa Weiss of The Wednesday Chef serves up encouragement and inspiration alongside autumn recipes.

Head over to Luisa Weiss’ blog and enjoy a slice from her post: “Leap and the Net Will Appear.”  While you’re there, you may want to grab a knife and fork – this is one savory blog!

~ Art Appreciation ~

Canadian artist Linda Lovisa of Natural Transitions Art Studio offers her perspective as a visual artist inspired by the natural world.

Visit the Brainripples blog for an exclusive Feature Artist Interview with Linda Lovisa offering the unique insights of a self-taught artist.

~ Writing with Results ~

Remember not to linger too long!  This month I encourage everyone with a writing goal to push aside the distractions and achieve tangible results.  It doesn’t have to be a novel:

Write and finish a short story.  Polish up your poetry and submit to your favorite literary journals.  Query some concepts with your favorite magazines and write the articles.  Bid for new freelance projects.  Review your journals for those strokes of brilliance which were never realized, and create something complete.

Whatever you choose, set a goal and plan to embrace it.  We invite you to share your goals and/or links to your creations here in the comments!
