What do you write about when you can find nothing to worth writing about?

What do you write about when you can find nothing to worth writing about?

Life can become commonplace, mundane, and even boring.  Maybe there is something in the unremarkable aspects of life worth writing about.  Maybe I should pay more attention to the world around me, so I can find the extraordinary in the ordinary.

 

The Pain of Writer’s Block

What does it feel like to have writer’s block?

The blank page is mocking me:
You call yourself a writer, yet there is not one word on my surface.  You are a loser.

My mind feels as blank as the page.  Maybe the creative section of my brain went on a vacation without telling me.

How do you break free from writer’s block?

The best way to break free from this misery is to start writing.

  • Write whatever comes to your mind
  • Write random words
  • Make a list (favorite books, people you know, childhood memories, things you need to buy at the store)
  • Describe something you can see.  Write about how it looks, feels, or is used.

Writing is the best way to smash through a writer’s block.

Writer’s Block

I love to write, but sometimes I just look at a blank page.  Writer’s block can be annoying.  Unfortunately, it is a part of being a writer.

Tips on overcoming writer’s block:

  • Spend time reading.  If you want to be a good writer, this is a prerequisite.
  • Relax and write down anything that comes to mind.  Writing junk is better than not writing at all.
  • Visit local museums, parks, events, art galleries, or other local places of interest.  Getting away from your desk and into the real world is a great way to find topics to write about.
  • Find a new and different location to write (coffee shop or library for example).  Sometimes a change of scenery is just the thing to get your creative juices flowing.
