The Inspiration, Motivation, and Creativity

“A bird doesn’t sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.”
Maya Angelou

Many people have asked me this question: “So what made you want to write a book?”

I wrote the first book because of an inspiration. My daughter loves liberal arts. She is a remarkable artist and writer, but a fickle musician. She started with piano, switched to guitar for a short time, then went back to piano briefly. She currently plays the clarinet for her school band.

I write because of motivation. My son has autism and learning disabilities. Our family motivates him to try his best, and we praise his efforts and accomplishments. He is the driving force in attaining my goals.

Lastly, I created a story line because of the encouragement my hubby provides. He always pushes me to express myself with words and imagination. 

So I want to write because I have stories to tell.



About Lisa Malabanan

I am a graduate of Rutgers College of Nursing and work as a Professional Registered Nurse in the field of Perinatology. I currently live in the Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania with my husband and two children. At the age of six, I discovered piano and classical music. A variety of music genres influenced my life through the years, and I’m passing on a love of the arts to my daughter and son. Reading fiction is my escape from the chaos and stress of a demanding yet rewarding profession. For me, writing transcends the diversion of a good book. The experience is like commuting on a New York City subway; diverse people enter and exit the scene, sometimes delays and derailment occur during creativity, and a train of thought is missed or passed over on occasion. In the end, an arrival at my destination is what I hope to accomplish, and I invite readers to take that ride with me. View all posts by Lisa Malabanan
