RTW: The Winds Beneath Our Wings

Inspiring Song of the Day: “Motivation” by Kelly Rowland ft. Lil’ Wayne

Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where YA Highway’s contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question that begs to be answered. In the comments, you can hop from destination to destination and get everybody’s unique take on the topic.

This Week’s Topic:
Who in your life has most inspired your writing?

We have a few answers to this AWESOME question:

1.) Of course, our parents encourage us to follow our dreams, but if we’re talking about who has inspired us our WHOLE lives to keep writing and being creative, that would be EACH OTHER!! We push each other to reach goals, encourage each other to finish projects that we know the other would regret abandoning, and we’re in the process of finishing a goal we set together–getting our MFA degrees this summer- WOO HOO!

2.) But there a few others who inspire us now on a daily basis besides one another. We have to give that credit to a few bloggy/MFA pals we’ve met along the way…

a.) Bloggy Pals: Alicia, Erinn, Abby, Holly, Mo, Jamie, Glenna, Caroline, and anyone else we left out b/c we’re total space heads sometimes!
b.) MFA Pals: Of course our sis, Racquel, and our adopted lil’ bro Matt 🙂

3.) Annnd, awesome writers like Courtney Summers, Ellen Hopkins, Laurie Halse Anderson, John Green, Blake Nelson, and every other awesome YA (and really ANY) writer for showing us how it’s done!

What about you? Who inspires you to keep going and push for those writing goals?
