    Yes I always do. I have too many ideas in my head. I try to always keep a pen and pad close to hand. Thanks for asking.

    No, I write every day, whether I'm inspired or not.

    No! I have to write all the time. Sometimes I write about things that I really hate.
    Thanks for reminding me of how terrible my life is sometimes.

    I write all the time.  I write about whatever comes to mind.  I could be talking to my mother and will jot down an idea to write about.

    If I only wrote when I was inspired, I'd never get anything done. I would say that true inspiration comes along very rarely and the majority of writing is editing/re-writing the inspiration you had a long time ago. That's not to say one can't create new inspiration (it is possible to use a formula for generating creativity) but it's a lot of work when it doesn't just come to you.

    It is easier to write when inspired but if you really want to grow as a writer you will challenge yourself and write until the inspiration comes.

    For me, writer's block doesn't exist. I write every single day. In other words, I show up and I write. If I am having trouble starting, I set the timer.

    It's because of these two things, showing up and setting my timer, that I believe that "writer's block" is a total myth.

    Not always. Sometimes its just work, Sometimes I have to work before I become inspired.

    Interesting question.....I don't know if I feel inspired as I don't write all the time, sometimes days can go past before I put pen to paper or fingers to keyboard:) I tend to jot down ideas and then work on a couple at a time until I am happy that they are complete.

    I usually keep a list of topics that I want to write about so that I can still write when I am not feeling very inspired.  I just pick a topic from the list and start writing.

    I am always looking for inspiration, but it's not the reason why I write.  I write because it brings me pure joy.

    Absolutely yes with my 3 hubs that was written in June 2010 A.D. with my 1st article: " Daily Nuggets Moment AMBASSADOR BRANDON BUTLER " My 2nd article on April 16, 2011 A.D. called: " Crossover To The Other Side Of Death. Ambassador Butler " My 3rd article on May 8, 2011 A.D. called: " Reasons Why You Do Not Want To Go To Hell. Ambassador Butler " These 3 hubs have as of June 16, 2011 A.D. ever total page views of 3049 and 460 monthly views in 12 months with an average of 1016 views per hub which is awesome. There will be no more divine inspiration writing from me because I have written all that GOD wanted me to write on hubpages for humanity. It is finish and I will continue to answer questions on hubpages. The greatest article on the earth is called: " Daily Nuggets Moment AMBASSADOR BRANDON BUTLER " I now have free time to watch the greatest show and boxing match of all time with the atheist and our so called myth GOD.

    yeah ... most of the time, maybe all the time! It's no use trying to write with no leads or ideas. It's better write when inpsired rather than sitting in front of the computer trying to think of what to write!
