BE INSPIRED

BE INSPIRED.Kevin Hodgson has been part of the Slice of Life Story Challenge since the beginning — 2008. In that time, I’ve learned a lot about digital writing from Kevin.  If you’re looking for ideas about weaving technology and writing together, then you should follow his blog, Kevin’s Meandering Mind!

That said, I recently learned about Super after reading one of Kevin’s Tweets (or was it something he posted on Flickr?).  In late February, he composed a short slice of life using the Super App.  Click here to view “Ice Falls” now.

 QUOTE OF THE DAY

“Write. Remember people may keep you (or me) from being a published author, but no one can stop you from being a writer. All you have to do is write. And keep writing. While you’re working at a career, while you’re raising your children, while you’re trout fishing — keep writing! No one can stop you, but you.” –Katherine Neville
