But every now and then I have a moment of pure inspiration, usually triggered by reading a book that's so well written it makes me get off my @$$ and write. (Most recently this happened while reading Maggie Stiefvaten's The Dream Thieves. So. Effing. Good.)
But a few week's ago my inspiration came from an unexpected source - Youtube. My husband sent me the below video and all I can say is...wow. Just, wow. It's such a great reminder that words are for more than stories - they can be cause for change. For expelling emotion. For bringing real world problems to life in a relateable way. For making people stop and take notice.
So without further ado, here is my most recent cause for writing motivation. I hope you're as moved by her vivid words as I am.
