Road Trip Wednesday #156: Inspire Us!

Welcome to our 156th Road Trip Wednesday!

Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question that begs to be answered. In the comments, you can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.

We'd love for you to participate! Just answer the prompt on your own blog and leave a link - or, if you prefer, you can include your answer in the comments.

This Week's Topic is: Tons of writers are in the midst of NaNoWriMo, trying to stay inspired as we reach the dreaded middle. Share your most inspiring and/or motivational video, book, or quote on writing!

Road Trip Song of the Week: "Something Good Can Work" by Two Door Cinema Club

Next week's topic: With Thanksgiving on the horizon we want to know how you balance hectic times like the holidays with your writing schedule.
