Finding Inspiration

       Many writers only write when they feel that they are moved by
       their muse. Are you one of those writers? And if you are, how
       often does the muse come and visit you?
       That’s what I thought….not often right?  Well, if that’s the case,
       maybe you should write regardless of whether or not your muse
       visits. That way, you’ll have a lot of consistency and predictability
       in your writing routine.
       Do you only write when you’re in your groove?  If you do, you
       also don’t get a lot of writing done. Writers who are serious write
       regardless of whether they are in their groove or not. Writers just
       love to write, and many times, as they start writing, they get into
       their groove from merely writing for an hour or two.
       Since muses and grooves come rarely in a writer’s life, it is
       important that you find other ways that are more predictable to
       inspire yourself to write. Maybe you should have a small reward
       system for yourself when you complete a week or a day of
       writing. This could go a long way towards helping you write
       routinely and consistently.
       I have found that after over twenty years of writing that my
       inspiration for writing could be as simple as waking up to a rainy
       day. I love writing during rainy days. But if I don’t have a rainy
       day to inspire me to write, I have my check mark system. As I
       complete a writing task, I check it off in red. And gosh does that
       EVER make me feel propelled to continue writing!!!
       What do you use for inspiration?
