This is something that everyone experiences, and thus has to deal with from time to time? I’m talking about writers block. Its that period of time where our creative juices just aren’t flowing. You feel you have something to say but you just can’t get the words out. Everyone has their ideas and ways of getting around writer’s block. Lets see how many things we can come up with, leave your suggestions in the comments.
I’ll get this party started with giving you some of the things that work for me.
Forget about Blogging – Go off and do something else. Spending time with your family, go for a walk, watch TV, clean the house, anything other than blog. This helps me clear my head and when I return I have a new set of ideas.
Read – Read my favorite blogs, read some email or even read a good old fashion book. This almost always sparks new inspiration and gives me a new fresh idea to write about. Reading about news in your niche is also a great way to get ideas. For example yesterday there was a flood of articles regarding the Google PageRank update. This gave practically every Blogger out there something to sound off about.
Write about what others are writing about – Having writers block also has its opportunities. The opportunity to go out and find great articles in your niche. You can then elaborate on the idea or gather up a few articles and provide a link roundup.
Now that I have gotten things started, lets keep it going. What do you do to overcome writer’s block?
