I tried to write a couple of articles for my blog and other websites to earn a couple of bucks, but I just can't come up anything today. I was sitting in front of my computer just like daydreaming. My brain was distracted by anything. I just couldn't write a thing. I look up at the ceiling and roaming to other space. What is going on with me, my brain just stuck, and I can't earn a cent today.

lols. i remember the old radio commentary days. It so happened that once, a cricket commentator during the 1980s, could not find the appropriate words to relay about the match going on. it was so morose and dull. those were the days of TEST MATCH... a cricket match spread over 5 days. ... and, all that he could manage is " and the ball reached back to the bowler. " --- after sometime, he asked for help from his fellow commentator. He quipped, "Keep ranting some nonsense, who cares what you speak? as long as you are filling the minutes? " ... the same applies to your situation. goodluck and have a nice day~!

It happen to me all the time. I did find myself out of appropriate words sometimes, and I just hate myself for it. Maybe I need more dictionary education. My brain just can't process that fast I guess.

Hi, I think it's about time that you read the article http://www.bukisa.com/articles/332370_how-to-write-about-anything-and-everything that discusses a few tips on how to write about anything and everything. Writing involves a high degree of contemplation. Your mind is not always ready for such a rigorous job. But there are things that you can do to improve this situation. What is not mentioned in the article is that when you are not writing you can do another quite useful thing, reading. To supply your mind with some immediate resources you need to be selective in your reading. Read http://www.bukisa.com/articles/341153_the-importance-of-selective-reading which explains the selective reading process. After reading for a while your mind will automatically spawn several topics to write about. This is a technique that you have to practice for a considerable amount of time. Follow every single statement that is given in these two articles. Make them a part of your life and you will always have an uninterrupted supply of writing topics. Thanks. God bless you

I have been writing consistently over the past month or so, but I'm having that stuck feeling today. When momentum ceases, that is when I find myself in this situation. Over the past few days, I have been concentrating on my work and had less time for writing. So I really need to get back to my momentum. How?

I think every writer has days like that. I should have written a couple of blog posts yesterday and just couldn't do it. I have at least a half dozen articles started, but I looked through them, and couldn't stand the idea of working on any of them. My best way of getting back to writing is to read. I surf through some of my regular websites and sometimes what I read will inspire me to get back to writing. Or a good book will do it sometimes. Don't worry. Your brain will get unstuck.

It is unfortunate but this happens to all of us from time to time. It is because we have so much on our minds that a barrier blocks and causes us to be unmotivated. Most would say that when we need to earn it is when we should be most motivated, but this technically is true but our brains our exhausted screaming for a break. Which is what I would suggest you do the same, take a break like a walk or anything to keep your mind on how much you want to do, come back refreshed and you will see that your mind will be back on track. Good luck to you and all of us who have so much going on.

I know how you feel. I was trying to write a review for an anime episode, and my brain just froze. I went off and wrote a different review, but I still need to finish it and my brain just doesn't want to work. At least I can say i got a little bit of writing done today, but I wanted to do a bunch more and it didn't happen.
