Make yourself Smile (Monday Inspiration)

Create something that brings you joy. That makes you smile.

What you create is as personal to you as your DNA. Your experiences, your worldview, your thoughts and feelings, those are what make your story truely unique. It’s what drives your interests, your research, your late night writing sessions.

Don’t worry about what the hypothetical markets would like. Don’t worry about the money you could make or the fame you could win.

Just write what brings you joy.

And hopefully, you will smile whilst writing it.


#Mondayinspiration is a chance for me to share my own motivational post it notes with the writing world at large. In the hope, maybe that someone else finds it as helpful as I do!
