Check out this post from the Novelty Revisions blog that asks the question: What Triggers Inspiration In You?
Have you ever logged onto your favorite website or turned on your favorite movie or TV show just so you could “get inspired?”
We have all probably done this at some point. We know ourselves pretty well, and we know the sorts of things that make us feel good. Being in a good mood isn’t necessarily a prerequisite for writing, but it definitely helps relieve stress and put you in the proper headspace to think clearly and get things done.
But is going after inspiration the best option? Perhaps, as long as you know the things that trigger inspiration for you personally, you won’t have to do any hunting.

Check out this great interview with Author Raymond Walker from this post on the Writer’s Treasure Chest blog.
Hello, please introduce yourself.
Hi, My name is Raymond Walker and I am a writer. I write under a few aliases as well as my own name so some of you may know me as “Ray T Walker”, Maeve O’Connell, Robert Anderson, June Rutherford and Elijah Plane but most of my books are written under my own name; Raymond Walker.
1. When did you start writing?
I started writing, way back in the mists of time, the seventies, little more than a child, I was raised on a farm in the middle of nowhere and there was little to do other than work study and read. A village lay close by; Peninver (Pro peneever) and it was there I attended school. As is the case with most writers they were raised a reader. I started reading for myself at a rather young age but no more so than many others…

Do you ever wish you could go back and have a chat with “Baby Writer You?” I think about that sometimes, about the things I’d tell that shiny, awkward, clueless soul.
But like parenting or dating, or any other hands-on life thing, you have to figure it out for yourself. Like learning how to adult, until you really get the hang of it, you don’t know how much you don’t know.
Besides, shiny “New Writer You” wouldn’t believe you anyway.
So logical, practical advice only then. Advice that even clueless Baby Writer Me could relate to…

Check out this post from the Novelty Revisions blog that asks a question that many of us probably think of from time to time, What is the Point?
A few weeks ago, I asked my Twitter followers what they wanted me to write about on this blog.
I don’t do this often, though maybe I should. As stressful and distracting as social media can be at times, it’s an important channel for connecting with audiences and reminding readers that you, a person, are just like them. Out here trying to make your way in the world, hoping you know what you’re doing, or at least hoping you know how to pretend you do when you don’t.
Sometimes the best questions are the shortest — yet, somehow, the least straightforward.
“What is the point?”
I have thought about this question for a long time — okay, only weeks, but they have been very long weeks. And to be fully transparent, I might have waited a lot longer to write about this if I hadn’t suddenly been faced with so…
