It is sometimes hard to come up with a blog post. There are days when I could write a hundred posts easily and then, more often, days when I get stuck once I’ve clicked on “New Post”. Sometimes I have great ideas, usually just before
I fall asleep or while I’m out walking or when I should be listening during a presentation at work, but these ideas are fleeting and disappear as soon as I start thinking about something else. Quite often I will work through an entry,
completely in my head, to the point of finishing it, but then, when I go to type it up, it’s gone forever. It’s as though my
brain says “Well, you worked it all out already – why does anyone else need to see it? Move on!”
I also don’t have a very interesting life. Which is fine by me, until I want to find something to write about. I’m not a daredevil or a risk-taker. I don’t have dangerous hobbies or a need to do things in bigger and better ways. Most times, I am just happy to have gotten through a day without falling down (clumsy), crying (overly-emotional) or embarrassing myself (social ineptitude). There isn’t anything left to write about. Nothing that would interest anyone else anyway. I can only go on about my illness or marriage breakup so many times before people start nodding off, or worse, logging off and “un-following”. I have my crafts but sometimes I don’t like what I have made or am just not able to get anything new made in the first place.
So, what to write, what to write…? I have looked around on the internet to see what other people suggest. Here’s a few good sites with topics and tips if you stuck like me:
There’s a hundred and one other sites to look at that might help fuel your creative fire. I am going to try some myself today – you may or may not get to see the result! 🙂
