I am trying to write something new, something unique and on a good topic but after spending whole two hours I am unable to do it. Suddenly I thought why not share my this pain with mylot family and get some suggestions related to my problem. So my question is: How you choose a topic or any idea to write about it, is it really easy way?

I'm the article writers but write in Indonesian than English because I'm not confident yet, not sure can write it out in good grammar.Well, I always try to collect source for my article from internet then re-write it by my writingstyle. At least my source is enough to write 3 - 5 article in a row. If I have no idea and topic to be source, I'll visit website that offer news, healthy article, hot topic, etc to get the inspiration or read a book and watching television. And the ideas can come suddenly.

When I couldn't write a thing, I walk or do some gardening, clean my house and do a sudoku or solve a puzzle. I also tune in to the news, watch television drama, call my family for a chat. I listen to all kinds of sentiments and laughter. And then I pray, sort of meditate, and ask the great Almighty to allow me to pen only the words that will be for His greater glory. Many times, good reviews come out of my work, and many times, too, I get to hurt sensitive souls. Be things as they may, I only write what is true and good and right. Look around, listen, and feel, there are so many beautiful things to write about.

The way you search inspiration I think it bring more calmness and feeling towards what you think and want to share with others. Thanks its a good and simple way to get inspired.

Life can have a surprising amount of inspiration when you really think about it. There are often times when I just look out the window or maybe at something on my room. The thought process from there it really can be strange. Often times, I get to the end article with no real rhyme or reason. Still there are times where I have ideas in my head, where I write down many bits and pieces throughout many days. Eventually, I might spin my random mutterings into an article, that is coherent. Also there are times where I see something on television, something that I really enjoy. Therefore it would be worthy of something to write about. Regardless of the fact, there is a lot of inspiration. Often times, it just can't be forced, but there are times where there is the opposite problem, there can be a few too many ideas flowing. Just have a look around and see what you can do with the inspiration you get.

No friend I not choose the topic before writing I find the topic from day to day activity and start writing. Since I joined the mylot I always try this to find out the discussion from day to day activity, news, events etc.

If you spend a large amount of time thinking what to write, it is a waste of time. Write something that comes in your mind. Participate in others discussions, this may give you an idea about what to write. But, don't waste your time by thinking what to write..
