For the next 30 days, I’ll be hosting The Friday Writes Blogging Challenge. It’s a blog rejuvenation series where we build community and challenge each other to post on our blogs for 30 days straight.

I’ve included a calendar with topics for each day. Please write your post on your blog then share a link on your Twitter profile with the hashtag #fridaywritesblogchallenge.

Each post should be less than 200 words, if you go over the word count you are not disqualified, but try to adhere to the parameters.

My first post is below. Stay connected.


5 Writing Inspirations

80’s and 90’s Cartoons

Cartoons are one of the biggest influences in my writing. When I was young I mainly watched action cartoons like G.I. Joe, Biker Mice from Mars, and the 90’s Batman the Animated Series. 

Comic Books

I didn’t have access to many comic books when I was a kid because we didn’t have a local comic book store and our local library didn’t have many comics. Whenever I found a comic or managed to scrounge up a few dollars to buy one, I read it 1000 times. The endings to the never changed, so I would make up my own story arcs and draw them in notebooks.

Lived Experiences

Lots of everyday occurences inspiree me to write. Some times the way the light touches the moon or the ambient noise from a sleepless city prompts a new story. I am thankful for these moments, because I feel fortunate everytime an inspirational experience comes to me. 

A Deep Compulsion

A big part of writing is the compulsion to complete a story every day. In the morning, if I wake up and I don’t get a little bit of writing done, I don’t feel right for the entire day. It’s like my brain knows that I haven’t done something that I’m supposed to do, and I need to get it done. 

P.S. This short word count is tough. I trimmed this down to 222 words. If you exceed the limit. It’s ok, just post your words, share, comment, and find some new writing friends.
