I was a bit tired the other day and thinking I need a bit of inspiration. As I thought about this, it came to me that inspiration can come from anywhere. I look to friends, books, pictures, etc. For me when I start writing, I pick up a little thing that reminds me of the book. In one case a small figurine from an antique shop, another was a photo from where I grew up as a child. The key is to stay inspired. Do what it takes. Be inspired.
