15 Great Resources to Put in your Back Pocket For Writing Inspiration

There are times I get so bogged down with life, I completely lose inspiration for writing or anything that could be considered creative. I have been in this place for a few weeks now, as you can see by my sparse posts. Well, I am attempting to reenergize my creative side. I even purchased Chicken Soup for the Writer’s Soul to find inspiration. Great book to help rekindle the writer’s soul!
