Got Writers Block? Write from the Heart!

by on Jul.15, 2010, under Blogging Tips

I was visiting a friend who told me the story of how his father escaped from East Germany before the wall came down. He fled the country on skis. Racing for his life he was chased down, dodged bullets and barely made it out alive. Only when he reached safety did he realize he’d been shot in the back.

It reminded me of what I had for lunch that day. I heated up a can of soup, it was a little salty. The whole episode left me feeling unsatisfied. What you’ve eaten for lunch is important to other people. Have you ever gone out for dinner and not thoroughly enjoyed your meal? Had some fast food that wasn’t all that great? Maybe even had a cup of lukewarm coffee? People want to know. Dammit, THEY DESERVE TO KNOW!

These things are important, so if you’re running low on inspiration just remember you’ve got a wealth of incredible interesting stories at your fingertips, and an insatiable audience hanging on your every word. You are the news thats fit to print.

Boring is the new interesting!

This is writing 2.0

Hey Bloggers, if you’re stuck for some good material here’s another tip, Boring is the new interesting! Let yourself write about anything that’s happened in your life, no matter how mundane it might seem to you. People will love it!

Have you had a bad day?

Have you had a bad day? Was some lady walking slight slower than you would normally walk, causing you a mild inconvenience? Did some guy you encountered on a forum have poor netiquette? Tell somebody about it, people not only want to know, they deserve to be informed of these events. Are you feeling down, uninspired, bored? It’s news to us.

Believe it or not, billions of people lead interesting and fulfilling lives. When they get home there’s nothing else they’d rather do than sit in front of a computer and find something boring to read.

Don’t stop there!

Take it a step further. Find lyrics to some lame song you like, and then simply copy and paste!
Do you want to write a movie review, but can’t be bothered? It’s simple! Merely search on google for a movie you’d like to review, find a review somebody else has already written that you think you might agree with (if you read it), and copy and paste it into your blog with the preface, “I agree with what this person wrote.”
This is writing 2.0 – writing without the hassle of writing.

Be sure to tune in next week when we’ll be discussing an even more advanced blogging topic, how to write a movie review that takes longer to read than actually watching the movie.
