Got Writers Block? Write from the Heart!

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.
