Are you inspired?
Today, I was reading about two topics that all artists (even writers) hold dear. I wasn’t reading about them in a book about writing or creativity. The book, which is filled with a lot of scientific data on how we work, is called Ungifted, Intelligence Redefined, and it inspired this post, particularly Chapter 6, which deals with inspiration and passion. 😀
Did you know that inspiration does a spiraling dance with goal progress? I do now. And you can dance upward toward the stars almost as easily as you slowly sink into the earth… almost! Of course, there are more variables at play here. But inspiration the way it’s described in Ungifted is not merely the act of being inspired by something but also the acting on that inspiration. Inspiration is active, it is doing… it is creating.
So… are you inspired? Tell all at the linky or our FB page (or both, if you’d like):
