Here’s a little writing inspiration for you, from the best-selling novelist Ray Bradbury. It addresses the Source of Ideas and how to avoid dreaded writer’s block:
‘If you stuff yourself full of poems, essays, stories, novels, films, comic strips, magazines, you automatically explode every morning like Old Faithful. I have never had a dry spell in my life, mainly because I feed myself well, to the point of bursting. I wake early and hear my morning voices leaping around in my head like jumping beans. I get out of bed quickly, to trap them before they escape.’
The Well of Story Ideas Never Runs Dry
Ideas come from various sources, and they come when you consume these sources regularly. A steady healthy diet of literature and its ilk will keep those creative juices flowing.
There is no reason you ever need to suffer writer’s block or struggle to find great ideas. Feed your writers’ appetite and you will have everything you need.

Or read my own Collection of Sprinkles, a series of short stories that almost defies genre labeling, and which might just get your own creative juices flowing. It’s good clean fun. And that’s what writing should be–fun! If it earns you a living or some disposable income, all the better.
