I pull my inspiration from many sources, and many of them are weird factoids I read about online. When I discovered Pinterest (ages after everyone else, as usual), I realized it was the perfect venue for me to keep track of all my online wanderings and inspirations, so I created a board called "Career" and add links as I stumble upon them. I also link to quotes and speeches I've found inspirational, both for writing and for living, and to more typical career things, like templates for your CV and such.
One day soon I hope to be able to post a final published poem, along with its various previous incarnations, starting with inspiration. Until that day, though, I thought I'd share this teeny-tiny starting part of my process, which involves a lot of reading and thinking before actually writing. If you're interested, you can check out the board in all its weirdness and beauty, here: www.pinterest.com/ktin520/career.
