Now that you’ve set your goals for the new year, set daily inspiration points.  Waiting for others to inspire or tell you to write is similar to waiting for the next solar eclipse.  Don’t wait.   I use several habits for daily inspiration; one of my favorites is receiving The Writer’s Almanac in my email box each day.  It gives several brief histories about authors, this day in history and a poem.  Nothing could be more inspiring.  Today is the birthday of J.D. Salinger, author of The Catcher in the Rye.  Salinger went through a series of rejections before he was published. It all began with short story.  LA Carlson
