I’m always looking for inspiration. Sometimes I’m sniffing, feeling and listening for it too. To put it another way, I’m always trying to get a sense of what I want to write about next. For the next month or so, however, I need look no further than the contract I’ve signed for a series of educational books. Not exactly, science fiction…but writing, nonetheless. (And, oddly, fun at times.) Better yet, they’re paying me for it!
($$ + Books = Happy Writer)
The point is, while I do have a “Next” novel project in mind, I have little time to think about it. I have even less time to think about my next blog post and wouldn’t you know it, my Twitter and Writer friend, Pauline Baird Jones, just awarded me The Versatile Blogger’s award.
Dear me… I don’t feel versatile at all right now!
So, to motivate me and to motivate you, I want to quickly share one of the most visually stimulating and inspiring websites I follow: Chicquero.com. (A note here, not everything on this website is appropriate for children).
According the website’s creators, who were born in Brazil, Chic means “stylish or smart, as an element of art, fashion and design,” while Quero means to “like, want; will, desire; love; list”. The photos and art on their blog definitely live up to all these descriptions.
Click on the pictures below (and the one up above!) to check out a few of my favorite posts. And bloggers, be on the lookout…I’ll be awarding The Versatile Blogger’s award to a few of you quite soon!
Thanks Pauline! (P.S. I’m halfway through reading your novel, The Key, and loving it!)
