Where I Find Inspiration

By Katie Corbett

These days, finding inspiration, particularly for my blog, has been a bit challenging. I normally write about career books, and this trend is not going away, but these days I needed to find another way to update my blog in a more stress-free manner. This caused me to look for inspiration in other places.


One place is through my experiences. There have been some weeks that I have used my experiences in order to generate ideas for blog posts. It has been particularly interesting to reflect on my experiences and think about how they shape my writing, my life, and my overall attitude toward things.


Another place I look for inspiration is through other people. I have reflected on the relationships in my life, and even used snippets of dialogue I have heard to get inspired. It has been really cool to think about how the people in my life impact me, and how I affect them.

A third place I go for inspiration is apps and prompts. I have an app on my phone called Brainsparker that generates a prompt or idea at scheduled times each day. I also like to look at books, inspirational quotes, and song lyrics to find inspiration for my writing.


What inspires you? Where do you go for inspiration when you feel like the well is running dry? I would love to know. Feel free to leave me a comment.
