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,



Motivation and Invitation

starting today

     I am always inspired and motivated when I read a post or an article or see a pin that makes me think. I usually try to  incorporate what I read into action in my life. So, I am taking this advice:

“Every accomplishment begins with a person deciding to try what dreams and vision that they may have in their hearts. Instead of just being someone with a creative imagination, and just being able to dream, we have to try to live to become the person we dream about being.”

I recently sent out a request to most everyone in my address book and while some responded positively, I wanted to extend the invitation to you also.

Uniquely Yours Craft Journal is looking for Guest Contributors to write and share their creative journey.

Some of you started your journey a long time ago. You met with obstacles, lots of hills and “slumps” and are still going. You have a lot of wisdom to share.

Some of you took up a walking stick (pen) and have jogged along quite nicely until you saw those two paths and are now trying to re-focus. You have a lot to share about overcoming those obstacles.

Some of you are new to journaling and want to remain anonymous because you are taking baby steps. You have found quotes on search engines and Pinterest that have inspired you. You’ve found other blogs and want to share, but are not sure to whom.

Whatever your case is, we all have things to share. Why not with us? My plan is to have you email me with your “Random Thoughts” or articles or pictures  and I will post them and of course give you credit. I won’t post your name or email if you don’t want me to. You can post once a week or once a month. Whatever you choose!

I look forward to hearing from you.


P.S. If interested, please email me at
