Lessons on Life: A Book Review

Having always been a Paulo Coelho enthusiast, I am forever on the lookout for his works.  When I stumbled upon his compilation of selected quotes, fittingly titled "Life", I immersed myself in it! 

I read it from beginning to end in one sitting, lapping up all its tidbits of insight like a kitten to milk. 

Then, I reread it, granting myself the luxury of lingering at every quote, relishing in its warmth.  One of my favorites, you ask?
"The fear of suffering is wors than suffering itself.  And no heart ever suffered when it went in search of its dreams."

Where do you find inspiration for your blog posts?

Virtual Musings: Today's Cure for Writer's Block
The next step in creating an interesting, engaging blog, one that speaks to your target audience with relevance and significance, is to decide what you want to blog about.  Well, that one's easy...I want to blog about my writing services.  The question I really should be asking is, "How will I come up with ideas for my blog posts"? 

As I have discovered, sitting at my computer doesn't guarantee that I will find instant inspiration for my blog posts.  Sadly, I have wasted countless hours staring at my computer, an emply blog post screen glaring back at me, wondering what the heck to write?!?  Other bloggers make it look so easy, with their miles and miles of blog post archives taunting me as I search for some sort of inspiration and insight.
