- Conferences where we can gather and connect with other like-minded souls
- Time alone to think, reflect and write, maybe in a very special place of our own
- Books we read that feed our own writing
- The people we love who inspire us.

- And pie. Definitely pie.
Many people keep a daily journal where they write down what they are thankful for. If you do not already, you may want to consider making this part of your writing life -- either a separate journal, or as a beginning to your writing journal.
Every time my co-blogger Lynn starts a new notebook, she randomly puts sticker dots throughout the pages. Whenever she comes to a dot, she stops what she is writing and makes a list of things she is grateful for.
