Inspiration is a gemstone It’s dynamite. It is power and possibility.
And it is there for all of us.
Where to find it? It can be sneaky.
The good news is that inspiration abounds! I am always on the lookout.
One way I become inspired is by others. I appreciate the people sharing both their advice and encouragement. They have helped me along my own creative path. People who know that generating the positive and to promote the possible is what it’s all about. Inspiring others has a domino effect. It’s all about positive energy. And I am all for that.
Attention goes where energy flows.
Inspiration given by others may be just what you need to get that poem started or that book finally finished.
So here are a few people worth checking out:
Pam Grout is author of several books including Esquared and the newly released Art & Soul Reloaded. Her blog is all about possibilities and accentuating the positive. Read it when you are and are NOT down in the dumps.
Bane of Your Resistance Rosanne’s blog covers topics like writers resistance and brain science. Her book, Around the Writer’s Block is worth a read.
Hope C. Clark’s Funds for Writers newsletter is another positive resource for advice and lists markets looking for your writing. The newsletter has been on Writer’s Digest list of 101 Best Websites for Writers since 2000.
Author, Kate DiCamillo is one of my favorite children’s authors. She can tell a good story to an adult as well as a child. Follow her warm and fresh posts on facebook.
There are many others I haven’t mentioned and my list will continue to grow. But for now I hope you will check them out when you need some inspiration or a new perspective.
