I'm sitting here on my bed trying to think of new blog posts.
I schedule mine, of course, so I try to write a week's worth at one time and have then ready to go each day.
Literally, without fail, every single week I panic thinking I'll never be able to come up with seven posts next week.
Right now, I'm panicking. Correction: I was panicking.
Where do I come up with my inspiration?!?
Now I'm inspired to post about inspiration.
I'm going to do a three post series of where I get my inspiration.
I must always have a pad of paper and a pen on hand because I get 40 percent of my ideas from daily life. I never know an idea is going to hit!
Must be prepared.
1) A tiny notepad that can be tucked into the tiniest of clutches.
(My favorite: the Lilly Pulitzer Lilly Pad!)
2) A pen (or two or three) that is always ready to go. Clicky pens are pretty great. You can one handedly pop the pen and be ready for action.
3) A good set of eyes and ears. Be constantly looking and listening. I like to look for patterns. When I start seeing things occur a lot, I make a note of it! Top of my list right now- Ostriche.
I get a lot of emails from new bloggers asking me how I come up with my ideas... Hopefully this helps you get a jump start on being prepared when inspiration hits!
