Thus far, I haven’t had this problem. You know, that complete emptiness inside your head when you sit down to write? It’s a bit disturbing. So of course, I do what I always do when I struggle with something content related; head to copyblogger and pro-blogger. See if there is any advice for “fixing” my problem…
Ok, I am not opposed to exercising at all. I quite enjoy it. But I did that already, so excercise is not the issue.
Oh! The Eugene Schwartz 33.33 minutes.
This one I kind of like. A lot. According to copyblogger (you can read the full article here if you’d like) Eugene timed himself, 33.33 minutes at a time and allowed himself to do nothing entertaining except write…and drink coffee My kind of plan, I’m thinking, if only to force myself down.
And the sticky kind, too. From words you like to miscellaneous thoughts you have. Acquire a collection of sticky notes around the writing area to give inspiration when stuck. I’ve adopted this trick, too. To no avail today, I might add.
Admit today is not your day
I have issues with admitting defeat. I know I have something up there that is interesting/humorous/helpful. I just have to find a way to pry those idea from the cold, seemingly lifeless (today) fingers of my brain…
…….haha. A 200+ word post. And possibly useful…maybe one of these ideas will help you.
