Sometimes you sit down to write and nothing comes to you. This is reffered to as writer’s block and can be quite annoying, especially when you have a deadline to meet. When you need to write an article or a blog post (like one for our 30 day power blogging challenge) and you can’t think of anything to write. Here are several sugggestions for how to get the creative juices flowing again and get back to your writing.
First, keep a notebook with you at all times. I keep a spiral bound notebook in my purse and in my car. This is my idea capturing system, and keeps me filled with new topics to write about. Sometimes I even pull over to the side of the road when I have an idea to make sure it doesn’t get away from me. You can use a digital recorder as well, but the notebook works the best for me.
Another way to keep the ideas coming is to ask questions from people on your list, those on Twitter, or people you have on your teleseminars. Their questions can all be turned into writing that helps others who have the same questions.
Finally, find out when your best writing time is. My best time is early in the morning, but you will write best whenever it is ‘prime time’ for you. Make sure you set aside time during these hours to make the writing process much easier for yourself.
