You ever have days when you don’t know what to write? I’m in one of those places right now. I’ve spent the last hour and a half reviewing blogs of some of my favorite writers and reading through my latest Writer’s Digest, but I am still struggling for inspiration.
I like to write blogs that help others avoid the mistakes that I make. You would think I would have an endless supply of topics, since I’ve made about every mistake imaginable. I’m sitting here staring at the screen and my mind is a blank canvas.
I suppose that could be a good thing at times, but today is not one of those times 🙂 What do you do when you don’t know what to write?
The most common response I get, is just start writing. The words may come slow at first, but they will catch up with you.
I’m testing that theory this morning. So far so good. I know I’m rambling a little, and I hope you will forgive me, but I am also doing a pretty good job of putting into words what is going on in my thought process right now.
This issue not only effects my blog, but like you, disrupts my writing as well. What do you do when you are creating a masterpiece and run into a wall? You can’t just stop!
Well I guess you could, but that wouldn’t be very productive, and your novel would be suspended on life support, waiting to be revived.
You have to push through, just as I am doing this morning. Keep writing. The words will come and the story will flow.
I would love to hear from you. How do you motivate yourself when you don’t know what to write?
