I Don’t Know What to Write About

There is literally nothing in my head … not one idea …

I don't know what to write about. Blogger's writer's block. I can't write on demand. When the ideas hit me, I'm not in a place to write.Yes, I seriously started this post like that and then left it. It’s the truth. Have any of you bloggers out there felt like this? I can’t imagine not a single one of you haven’t. What do you do about it?

It’s been over a month since I even wrote in my journal. I’ve wanted to. I keep it near me just in case. It just doesn’t happen. Other things get in the way. Even now, I should be doing other things. But I’m taking the time to write this nonsense just to force myself to write in hopes that it will get some creative juices flowing. Sadly, it’s not working out that way because this is far from creative. It feels more like a waste of time.

Still, I tell myself I love to write. I want to write. I don’t care if only one person reads it (that one person is me). My blog has no set direction or theme. I don’t like to be strapped to one idea. I mean, how much can be written about one subject? Would this be called a lifestyle blog?

The only time the mood strikes me, I’m not able to write because I’m either driving or shopping or running errands. I’ve noted ideas on my smarter-than-me phone. That’s a super idea … until I sit down to write and no longer feel like writing about any of those ideas. < insert frustrated scream here > 😡

So, dear fellow bloggers (if you’re reading), what do you do about this problem???

  1. Personally, I love taking a break from writing every now and then. I like to get into different arts just to bring out my creativity elsewhere. Then when I come back to writing I always feel as if the words just automatically flood out. Recently I took on cinematography just to bring my ideas to life! Try bringing your creativity out elsewhere and let me know if it works for you!


    1. Thanks for commenting! I also do photography and dabble in digital design. Those are also getting dusty. Work and, well, life in general have cut in line. Once my youngest graduates at the end of this month, things should ease up. So there’s a light at the end of the tunnel!
