Ever feel blogged out? Or that your world is filled with headlines and blog ideas?

I sometimes get so zoomed into social media that when I zoom out to real life,  my head spins. (Not the exorcist kind, the vertigo kind)

So to take us all beyond this blog, I’m doing a short post to a few things outside the box:

1. Bit o’ holiday inspiration.

You probably know that I write an online column for The Writer called, “Inspiration Zone.” Well this month I was fortunate enough to interview author and writing coach Rochelle Melander. She’s got great tips on how to make time to write and enjoy the holidays. And she should know. She basically wrote a book on it from participating successfully in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month).

2. Bit o’ Creative Inspiration.

I was in love with Jill Badonsky’s book The Nine Modern Day Muses. And fell even harder for her blog and email newsletters. They crack me up! Talk about getting out of your box. Instead of boring links taking you to predictable sites, she embeds things like hilarious photos and meaningful and creative quotes to mix things up and keep things on your toes. It’s a fun way to recharge your engines, take a writing break and refuel.

3. Bit o’ Meaning Please.

I just added this one because I’m over on my writer pal Cathy Miller’s blog today writing about meaning in your life. How do you get it when your days are swamped with work, kids, bills, the musts in your day-to-day living? Try reading this.

Anything that you’d like to share in our outside your blog? Please do. I’m always interested in adding to my list of creative and inspiring resources.
