Writing and Other Crazy Stuff
While this topic will be mostly about writing, it may cover a wide variety of other subjects. Writing doesn't occur in a vacuum, it's related to everything we experience, and so a topic about writing can be about anything and everything.

Pamela D Lloyd's insight:

Although written from the perspective of an academic writing for academia, the insights about writing apply across the board, to all writing. No stunning new insights, but a useful reminder for those of us who struggle, as I do, with writing blocks.

Hope is Required For Writing

Hope is Required For Writing | Writing and Other Crazy Stuff | Scoop.it
Writing sounds easy, but it is not. Hope is required for writing, for it is an act of faith. Famous writers struggled, and so do we. We need hope to write.

For those days when the words just won't come.

Kali Cordes's curator insight, February 20, 2014 5:17 PM

This article describes the necessity of hope when a writer of any level sits down to write out their thoughts. The article mentions several famous authors' descriptions of what it takes to be a writer, and how even they required some inspiration to keep at it.

I loved this  article because it describes my exact dilemma that I wrote about in my first semester portfolio. Inspiration is a hard thing to find within yourself, but it is also the most important part of writing. The hope described in the article is really the key to finding that inspiration.
