The ACT Writers Centre’s monthly magazine is called ACTWrite. She’s a funny character, and over the next twelve months, she’s also going to be slowly evolving. Our upcoming edition is all about where writers, Editors, publishers and publishing houses source their inspiration from. Inspiration can spur us to get out of bed in the morning and feed ourselves toast, or it can exist as that striking moment when an imaginative thought begins to embryo into an idea for a piece; the wonderful thing is, inspiration is about momentum, and this stirring, for each of us, is experienced uniquely.
If those things that inspire you are as simple as walking your dog, or reading to your children, or perhaps as heinous as needing to pile whipped cream onto a dollop of icecream*, we’d like to hear about them. Leave us a short comment below, telling us what inspires you to write, or read, or get into the office to wade through a slush pile. We’ll be selecting a few to appear in the December issue of ACTWrite, and we’ll be sure to let you know if your comment is selected to appear.
*this may be exactly the domestic conditions one staff member of the Writers Centre requires to commit to creative thought, and in all likelihood, diabetes.
