Calling all writers...

Hello dear readers. I know several of you (at least I hope you're here reading) are writers. I have a request of you. Trey, my wonderful husband, writes. Well, at least he used to. You see, he was an English major, back in the day, when we first met in college. His concentration was creative writing. He used to write prose, poems, stream of consciousness, you name it.
But he hasn't done it in a long time. His job is a bit more technical now and doesn't really allow for any creativeness. I've encouraged him to write stories about things he's seen and done, or fiction or about whatever it is that inspires him. He's a bit reluctant, possibly because he hasn't done it in a while, but he said he would think about it.
I would love it if some of you writers could encourage him to break out the old leather journal and put pen to paper. He isn't one to share everyday things on a blog (unlike me, right?) but I've told him that if he'd write something, I'd love to share it here.
What challenges have you faced as a writer? What inspires you? When do you find you do your best writing? What other words of encouragement can you share? Do you have any links to writers that you like? (don't assume I go to the same places you do).
I look forward to sharing your words with Trey.
