How to find Inspiration for writing

Dear Fellow Journalers,

It’s nearly the end of the year and the holiday season begins tomorrow. Have you ever wondered if your writing will suffer if you immerse yourself in the holiday experience? Will you have empty pages in your journal? How will you ever be inspired? Journal prompts are great but let’s put them aside for a moment and try something new:

  1. Books – I tend to read several a month. I usually write down sections of text or highlight them (if reading on my Kindle).

  2. Movies – Sometimes, while watching a movie, a character will say something so interesting that I’ll say “That would make a great blog post!” or “I have to write that in my journal!”

3. History – Great people in history can inspire you to greatness. Some of my favorite people are Anne Morrow Lindbergh, Helen Keller and George Washington. When you read the biography of someone and see the trials and successes of their life’s journey you come away with inspiration to tackle your own difficulties.

  1. Success Stories – Finding out how others who had an idea and “ran with it” inspires me to pick up my pen!

‘Til next time,



What to write in a Holiday Card

Dear Fellow Crafters,

In my past life, I was stymied by the blank page in a greeting card. I mean, what the heck should I write??!! I solved my problem by writing down sentiments in a journal which then expanded into typing and printing them for future cards. Now, when I am pressed to write something witty or sentimental or funny, for that matter, I just refer to my Sentiment Journal. Here are some greetings for your holiday cards. Please feel free to share:


•May the miracle of Christmas fill your heart with love and warmth.

•Wishing you all the joys of Christmas and happiness through the new year.

•May you be blessed with love, peace, and laughter.

•May God bless you and your loved ones this Christmas season.

•Wishing your family peace and love at Christmas and always.

•May beautiful moments and happy memories

joyfully surround you this Christmas.

•Wishing you a very jolly Christmas.

•Wishing you a festive holiday.

•May your stocking be full of wonderful presents!

•Love and joy come to you this Christmas!
