Hi. I'm a article writer and I enjoy doing writing and getting paid for it. As much as I love this endeavor, i am beginning to doubt if my writing is becoming 'too stale' or 'tops boring'. I try to inject some excitement in my articles but the sometimes I feel that I am being constricted by the form or I'm really running out of ideas to introduce and explain a topic. I know that articles are supposed to be informative and educational to its readers. i try to do that and give a new perspective, so that the readers will understand and appreciate the topic. However, I don't know any fresh ideas or new perceptive or attacks to do so. Could anyone of you please help me on this matter? I would really appreciate it.

Well, try to reflect on it go where the story is, freshness in topic needs some nourishment you need to go where you feel the need to write something or something informative.How about a nursing home, an orphanage, or the prison...

i find that there are always ideas around if you just relax and dont put so much pressure on yourself. my suggestion is to read. often ideas can spark from stuff we read.

I've been concerned about this sort of thing, also. How much can you write on one subject? Or even two or three? I would say take a break for a little while and let you mind rest. Then when you come back to writing, look for something totally new, research and then post about it. I mean, who's to say that we can't gain further knowledge while still earning money? ;)

It is natural for writer's to have this block. That is perhaps due to what we call a saturation point. You look at things and you see the same stuff, so you think about the same words. And the form you are required to adopt is somehow impeding your creative imagination. The cure is to stop for a day. Relax, go see a movie, eat @ a restaurant, watch people, grab a magazine or two, search for some exciting stories and graphics in the bookstore, or perhaps go bungee jumping.
