Places for Inspiration for Writers and Bloggers

34 places to look for inspiration . . .

In the music you hear and the songs you sing

Through the lens of a camera

In a great neighborhood bookstore

In a garden where you can dig for it

Through the eyes of a friend

In the laughter of little kids

On the shelves of your local library

In the conversations around you — Listen in!

Via movies, TV shows, and YouTube videos

In the sound of a burbling spring

On the beach, on the street, or on the subway

In the faces of lovers and strangers

Via Craigslist, Buzzfeed, Reddit, or StumbleUpon

In People, Vanity Fair, Wired, Woman’s Day

On Facebook, on Twitter, on Google+

In a great retail gift store

Via Tumblr, Medium, Flickr, etc.

In your notebooks, junk drawers, or diaries

On a random street or highway

In the wag of a dog’s tail

Via a podcast, a webinar, or a Google Hangout

On the pages of Amazon, Ebay, Wayfair, etc.

In one of your old blog posts

Up in your attics and down in your basements

On the pages of your favorite bloggers

In WalMart, Target, Home Depot, or Lowe’s

Through the hearts and minds of your friends

Via a Google or Bing search

Amid the hustle and bustle of your office

On Pinterest, Instagram, or Snapchat

In a book, a poem, an essay, a manifesto

On the dark side of the moon

In the stillness of the night

Via the deepest inkling of your soul
