My friend Gini Dietrich is such a jerk. She’s the only blogger I’ve ever known who can write a blog post about absolutely nothing and get more than 350 comments. So while I’m seething with professional jealousy, I’m also thinking about inspiration, and the process I go through when I’m stuck and can’t think of anything to write.
For the most part, I rely on my feed reader. I read other posts and ideas bubble up; before I’ve finished my reading I have several ideas for future posts.
I go offline a lot, too, reading magazines and books, making notes or even, sometimes immediately creating a first draft of a blog post.
Lately I’ve been trying a few other avenues to boost creativity. I’m curious, though . . .
What do you do to find inspiration?
P.S. Gini, you know I love you!
