It’s been a long, rough couple of weeks in my non-writing world lately, so I’ve been looking for ways to keep myself inspired and motivated.  A lovely piece of inspiration arrived in my mail at the beginning of the week: a birthday card from my publisher, on a day that I really needed it.  Today, I have had to make my own.  To find it, I dug out a gift from my husband for last holiday season, right after I’d accepted the offer for my book:

Tomorrow, I’ll have to find some other way to keep myself inspired.  Maybe chocolate and some petting of my cover art again.  Heck, that will inspire me even more right now, and again tomorrow.

My shiny new cover art! isn't it pretty?

What do you do to keep yourself inspired and motivated to write when things  in other parts of your life  (ie, work, etc.) are not the way you’d like?
