    The subject requires a determiner.

    His/A
    hard life inspired him with many ideas for his novels.

    My version

    His hard life provided lots of ideas and inspiration for his novels.


    I am not a teacher.

    If you are meaning his own life was hard, then 'A hard life inspired.."

    If you are speaking about 'life' in general, and that 'life is tough and life is hard but life goes on'

    then you can omit the indefinite article:
    Hard life inspired him...
