Inspiration. Decorating!

It has been a very long time since I last posted anything! I have been a very busy girl. Nevertheless, here I go...

What is inspiration? Some people will say that it's what makes people do things, but that isn't true. Most people are inspired to do things very regularly that they never get around to. I, for one, have been inspired to clean my room about a dozen times in the past twenty-four hours.

...and that's about as far as I got.

When people are inspired to do things, they may start right away, or set a careful plan. And for small things, that can work. But very few people can get big things done with only a moment of inspiration to fuel them.

Which is why we need some other tools to keep us from going off track.

It's awesome to be encouraged by others. I have the bestest most wonderfulest support group for my writing online, and they are my favorite people. But sometimes, you also have to encourage yourself.

Hence the redecorating of my bedroom walls!

Please ignore my... less than spectacular photography skills.

This is the wall on top of my desk! I decorated it in honor of some edits I'm making to Mad As A Hatter, my Wonderland-inspired novel, as we speak!

I've never actually done something like this, but I'm optimistic.

So, what do you do to encourage yourself? Any favorite rituals or tools? Comment and let me know!

(p.s. The pictures on my walls do not belong to me in any way, shape, or form. They are images I printed off Tumblr for no reason but to put them on my walls.)
