So, here's what helps me: sometimes, I let the subject / question / issue at hand stew inside my head for a while; then I sit down and just start writing a thought or two. I need to be in the right frame of mind. I find a place that feels like a good place to let the ideas and the words flow. Sometimes it's the home office, sometimes the couch, sometimes a comfy chair, sometimes the porch or patio or deck. Then I just start writing, backspace deleting, and writing some more. Next thing I know, I've written it. The important thing is to sit down and start. There, I did it! (Thanks for the question; I needed it.)(less)

Sometimes, good music stirs the creative juices and motivates me to sit down and write. In writing "Letter from Alabama," I was inspired by the good and decent and caring people who lived and acted out the actual events. I thought their story should be told, because they would inspire others. And, in the process, they inspire me, all over again.(less)
