Keeping a blog helps, although I'm not as active as some bloggers. My personal goal is at least one post per month...so far so good. The blog is an eclectic mix of stuff...short stories, sad attempts at poetry, musings, thoughts and things I've done. I have no theme and that helps in keeping my interest in the blog itself. As far as getting inspired to write the next book, it's a process of research, creating a loose and flexible outline, then it has to feel right before I can start writing it. That may sound crazy but without that feeling of "it's time", it will usually start out poorly and I won't be able to finish it.
