Book Review: Refilling Your Inkwell by Kellie Sheridan



Once finished with this book, one can't help but feel inspired to write after reading. The author does a good job at explaining each technique to help motivate you to be creative again. You might find one or two new things in this book if you don't read non-fiction aimed at writers too often or search online writer's advice blogs too much.

For me, since I do both, I can't help but feel that what has been written is nothing Earth-shatteringly new. I've seen or read it all before so it's not as helpful to me when it comes to finding a new inspiration technique. 

Still, I recommend this book if you often struggle and need reminders of different strategies to help re-inspire you to write. The reason is because a majority of the techniques can all be found in this one book. This saves you time so you don't have to it searching for inspiration online. If these strategies work for you, you can just pick up the book and read until you're out of your creative rut.....or at least feel somewhat productive until you feel inspired again.

3 out of 5 rating for me!
