    How often do you write? What do you do to keep motivated with ideas?

    I wrote a few articles for hubpages when I started but from then stopped. I still have the stamina to write it just never comes around. Any tips?

    I write when I feel I have a topic completely thought out. I will begin a hub and let my thoughts run. If I get stuck, then I will save the material and come back to it later on. As for getting motivated, I recently answered another hubbers question "How Can I Get Motivated", by writing a hub on it. You're more than welcome to read it. It might help you get motivated, in a manner, you've yet to tap.

    I honestly write everyday. I am working on a couple of books. As for what i post here, maybe every other day, i develop ideas. I write basic on feelings.

    I try to write every day. I keep a notepad and pen with me at all times and if I get an idea for a hub, I jot it down no matter where I am. I always have the motivation, its the ideas I run out of at times. I find that by reading newspapers, books and magazines I can get lots of ideas from them. It I get a total block, then I take a day out and go do something with the kids which normally gives me some inspiration. Good luck.

    I thank you all for your wonderful answers. More people please contribute so that not only I, but everyone can experience different ways that writer's motivate themselves!

    I write seven days a week, and will continue to until the work dies down :S. Ideas have never really been a problem for me -- what I write for clients generally comes with a title, or a topic from which I will come up with my own titles. As I write for other people, different ideas often spring up, which I write down in my notebook to write for myself when I have a chance. I also glean a lot of inspiration from the answers section here (yes, there are some great questions among all the chaff), as well as from comments others have made to my hubs. I currently have a list of about 50 titles inspired by comments on my marketing and business hubs alone -- if someone asks for it, my mind is generally already off and answering, waiting for my fingers to catch up wink.

    I tend to write everyday but on occasion your mind and creativity can experience what I call 'burn out'. When this happens and my energies and creative juices are low, I tend to just browse around Hub Pages and the net in general. I don't look for anything in particular but just go with the flow of whatever sparks my interest. Hub Pages is particularly good as there are so many great writers, hubs and questions to get you stimulated. I never fail to get re-inspired and motivated and the energy levels zoom up again.

    I write every day, multiple times per day.  I have a three part hub that I wrote that helps me to get ideas for writing hubs.  Maybe it would help you too.

    If you write from your heart Whisper, you'll gain people who'll love to read your work over and over again. There are certain children's stories I was able to compose that were actual dreams. This is what a writer dreams about becoming, "a writer of dreams."
