We’ve all heard of random acts of kindness, but I just made the most out of a random act of inspiration!
What on earth am I talking about?!
Have you ever noticed that great ideas will pop into your head at the most random times? It’s like the second we give our brains a break, it comes up with amazing ideas that we never could have thought of if we sat down and concentrated really hard. That’s why so many people sleep with a notepad next to their beds — so that they can jot down all of the random acts of inspiration that show up at 2 AM!
For me, though, this latest random act of inspiration came while I was wide awake. I was actually cleaning my house — you know, doing all of the chores that you hate to do and put off as long as possible. Well, in order to make my chores a little more enjoyable, I turned on some music and started dancing as I dusted.
That’s when it hit me… the plot for my third book!
Right there in my living room, I could see everything. I was so excited that I ran over to a notepad and started jotting down notes. This was one random act of inspiration that I wasn’t about to forget! I’m still smiling over what I came up with, and I just had to share my excitement with all of you!
Of course, as you know, I still have my second book to contend with. Ironically, I got up and started cleaning because I was feeling a twinge of writer’s block on the second book. Isn’t it funny how things turn out? Here I was frustrated over my second book, when my third book popped into my head as clear as day!
So, the next time you have a random act of inspiration, don’t let it go. Taking full advantage of it is the ultimate mood-booster!
