Writer’s inspiration for the soul

by arianne

**Giveaway is over, thanks to all who participated!

I have been diversifying my “bag” lately, but I am first and foremost a writer.  I admit that I get most of my inspiration from the steam in the shower, but I also notice my writing suffers when I’m not reading something regularly.

Sometimes I need to be reading fiction, need to get my head into that swirly, fantasy world so that I can feel myself connect more with that tortured artist that resides in my soul.  Other times, I have the burning desire to read through all my RSS blog feeds and then keep on going until I’ve had my fill of the personal outpouring that goes on within our ‘sphere.  Still other times, nothing but a really great magazine is all that’s required to get my creative juices flowing.

I think magazines that are well done can offer so much to writers, anything from the latest buzz to serious home fanciness, it all adds value to my bag of tricks.  Giving magazine subscriptions as gifts has always been a fun thing for me to do, and that’s why I’m excited that I get to give two of you dear readers that very gift!

Giftscriptions has 50 magazine selections to choose from, and the cool thing about it is that you pay the $20 for the subscription, and your gift recipient gets to take their own pick of the litter.  It comes in a nice box so that there’s even something to unwrap.  I got the chance to get my own, and I had to think about it for all of two seconds before deciding on Martha Stewart Living as my new “inspiration” medium.  I can’t wait!

Win it! Giftscriptions rock, and they want to give two away to you guys (two winners!).  I’ll get it to you by Christmas, so this giveaway is a quickie and is ending on Monday December 22nd at noon.  To enter, leave a comment here telling me what your writing inspiration is, is it your favorite book?  Magazine?  Blog?  I want to know!  You can get extra entries by tweeting and/or blogging about this contest (total of three entries per person.  Please leave a separate comment for each entry.  Good luck!
