Chase Inspiration

The most frequent question writers are asked is some variant on, "Do you write every day or just wait for inspiration to strike?" I want to snarl, "Of course I write every day, what do you think I am, some kind of hobbyist?" But I understand the question is really about the central mystery - what is inspiration?"
- Hilary Mantel

Where do we find Inspiration? 
When it hides, chase it up a tree. 

Mine for its mystery in colors.

Explore the world with all the senses. 
Begin with a sound, add a scent, feel a movement. 

Continue with tickles and taste.

By this time you are on a journey of discovery. 

Inspiration has erupted.  

Then just write.
