I don’t know any writer or author who feels inspired all the time. It seems as if inspiration comes and goes, depending on the day, your mood, your stress level, or which way the wind happens to be blowing. The bad news is, being uninspired leads to a lack of motivation, which results in a drop in productivity. The good news (yes, there is good news!) is that there are many ways to increase inspiration.

Here are three:

1. Hang out with Creative People. A great place to start is with the FaithWriters conference! You’ll be surrounded with so many creative people your inspiration won’t dare disappear.

2. Work in difference Places. Move out of that drab office into the bright kitchen. Take the laptop to the park. Head to your nearest Starbucks. Sometimes, all it takes is a change of scenery to get those creative juices flowing again.

3. Forget about it. Then there are those times when you just need to forget about it completely for a little while. Go to the movies, read a book, play with your kids. Inspiration has a way of showing up when you least expect it.

Chime in with other ways to increase inspiration.
