Creativity is a natural inborn trait. It doesn't leave me, I leave it. I have a strong inner critic that blocks the creativity; knowing this helps, and I'm learning to let go of all criticism and just enjoy creating whatever I choose at the moment. Glad to find a bit of inspiration here for doing this. Curtiss Ann Matlock

I just popped in for inspiration. Been in a funk lately and can't seem to get the juices flowing again. I envy Erin but I have learned to never say never! Tory Richards

I eat right. Exercise. Enjoy my hubbie. (Search for a new doggie to love.) Close my computer and my office doors at 5-6 every night and DO NOT return until the next morning. Read ANYTHING that interests me. Keep a balance and let the ideas come...in the shower, in the car, on a day out with my gal pals! Cerise DeLand

I'm involved in so many different projects that I can't help working just about all the time. If I'm not writing for one magazine or another, I'm writing on one of the few projects I've got going (Dusty's 6th adventure or Red's 4th novel). Michelle Gent

For me, the main incentive is the end result. But yes, some days are harder than others. On some, the story flows fluidly while on others it needs some coaxing. Either way, Cecilia and I push each other forward to reach our common goal. That's the beauty of a partnership. Chris Almeida and Cecilia Aubrey

I stay creative by drawing from my surroundings, so I try 2 keep myself open and intuned 2 the world around me, sonrisa.... And going 2 a really quiet place like the library or the Barnes and Noble's and find a corner and let it just pour out of me De Ann Townes Jr.

I write in different genres, so if I lose my way in the current novel, I write a short story or article. And coffee at my favourite cafe helps! Rosemary Gemmell

An excellent question. I'm constantly and often randomly blending ideas. For example what would be the consequences of a vampire being able to hear colors? Or what would it take for werewolves to live among us. Is there an answer to the age old question of why a loving God lets bad things happen to good people. Mike Arsuaga
