I is for Inspiration

Inspiration can come from many sources but here are where the majority of mine come from:
  1. Reading - Books (fiction and non-fiction), blogs I follow, newspapers, magazines, quotes, twitter
  2. Friends and family
  3. TV
  4. Personal experience
  5. The world outside
  6. The act of writing itself
  7. Dreams
  8. Eavesdropping
I have also just discovered a really cool tumblr site called Writer Inspiration that I suggest you check out. You can hit the random button and it will come up with an inspiring article, prompt, story starter, or picture. Be warned though, you could easily lose an hour looking through it.

With the exception of April, which is taken up with the A-Z Challenge, I publish a post every Friday entitled Weekly Inspirations which includes a list of links to all the articles/blog posts/quotes that I have found inspiring that week. You can look at previous posts in the sidebar or come back next month to check it out.

How about you? Where do you get your inspiration from? Let us know in the comments below, I'd love to hear from you.

I'm going to be away on holiday until 15th April, but I have scheduled all the posts for while I'm away. I will try and log in once a day to check everything is running smoothly and reply to as many comments as I can. If you leave a comment I will visit your blog when I return and reciprocate. Happy A to Z'ing.


  1. Great, just what I need, another web site to get lost in instead of writing. Looks pretty cool, though. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Sounds like a good site, as is yours Have a good holiday!

  3. Nice tips - haven't seen that Tumblr one before. Enjoy your hols.

  4. I do believe you list covered my sources of inspiration.

  5. I am intrigued by eavesdropping being on your list. I never really thought about it. Interesting!
