The Absinthe Road - A Blog to Stoke the Fires of Creativity

I'm long overdue for a "Blog Me Baby" link to a writer's blog, so I'm doing a shout out today.

Recently over on Cathy C's Hall of Fame blog I read about another writer's blog called The Absinthe Road. Blog creator is Karen, a writer, an editor, a publisher, and a photographer from Texas. According to her blog, her desire is to "fuel the fires of momentum and encourage creativity in others."

Each Monday she will post a prompt to stoke the fires of creativity. "It might be a quote or a link to a song. It could be a painting, a photograph, a single word, or just a phrase. All you need to do…is simply write. Write a song, or a story, or a poem. You don’t have to share it with anyone unless you want to. Let’s compel CREATIVE to get off the ground!"

So, if you're looking for inspiration, check out Karen's blog, and Monday would be a great time to start.

Note to self: Post "Blog Me Baby" links more often.
