How Not to Run Out of Topic for myLot? Writing is not for everyone. It's a skill which could acquired by learning, by practicing it, by modeling but not all is going to be a writer. Writing is an art. It takes varoius style or methods which the writer is comfortable with it. Here in myLot most of users aren't used to writing. They consider this site as another form of social media like Facebook in which in any manner it's not. They post trivial things which have less or no value at all and usually their posts are queries on personal in nature. IDEAS for DISCUSSION Anyway I am doing my best to give you some techniques so that you may not be running out of ideas or topics for discussion. 1. Unforgettable Experience. You could serialize it by events, chapter or category. It could be done in three to four series. 2. Do It Yourself (DIY) projects. You could present it step by step, by outline and giving a description of it. It could be presented in three to four batches including marketing. 3. Documenting a Book in the Bible. You may use Psalms with 150 Chapters. This means you could have 150 posts equivalent to 5 months if you post each chapter per day. All you have to do is - give the mean idea or topic sentence of each chapter. Relay it to your life experience or from others testimony. 4. News Feed. Search the Internet of the trending news. Read the comments or reactions of the readers. Get the consensus and present the issue for discussion in your own words Don't copy it for you'll be violating the copyright law. 5. Say it in a Song. Pick the popular songs regardless of time of popularity. Present why it's popular. Identify the audience, their age group and the rationale why they like the music and the song artist as well. 6. Money Matters. Refrain from discussing instant money making, lottery or any form of gambling but rather discuss successful business entrepreneurs, who's who in the field of marketing by emphasizing how they become successful. State their worth emulating traits why they become successful. Be careful not to plagiarize. 7. Walk Their Talk. Look for exemplary persons in various fields of endeavor, who serve as the model of humanity. Emphasize their exemplary character. You may connect it with yourself or to any members of your family. 8. Negative Outlook. Trials and challenges have a bad effect to everyone. They discourage them. They lead people to give up. But when these things are overcome, the affected individuals become resilient, strong and determined until they reach the pedestal of success. Look for these things and write about them. These are some of the techniques in making writing worth reading. The number of words to keep may not be less than 300 words. It may be more, the better. Don't forget to observe the mechanics in writing. However, myLot is not strict about good English or grammar. Good luck. Copyright © 24 September 2017 by Gil Camporazo (Nocturnal Writer)

Best solution always bring a pen and a paper once an idea pops up, write it done and develop it. Or you may use smartphone's voice recorder. I think you know how to use it. Record what you've in mind and replay later when you've time.

I think everyone has their own techniques to writing. Not all are aware of it. This is a place for people to let their hair down so to speak and enjoy interacting with others.

I agree with you that writing is art you learn, model and practice. Writing also has it objectives, the style to adopt when writing for a discussion site or forum is far different from writing for reading and assimilation alone. It is ideal to end your write up in such a manner that the audience will assimilate, learn and are able share their opinions so as to make it a participatory discussion

I know you're a good writer. You can analyze a discussion in an organized point of view. I have read yet your discussions here. You have presented a good point of view.

Good tips. I might try DIY or at least think of how it could be presented. Thanks.

DIY is more on technical writing just like a project plan which deals on the name of the project, its materials and billinngs, and so on and so forth.

@dodoazo your post got me inspired to look for projects other do and how they blog about them which seems appealing. It would give me something to write about and keep my nose clean at the same time.

I don't usually have time to post more than three discussions in a day, and by the time in the day I can post them, enough things have happened that I often have plenty to say. Too much, some people might add. I seem to have the gift of the gab.

You mean thoughts keep on flowing from your mind. Is the gift you're talking about?

@dodoazo No, we have an expression "gift of the gab" for people who talk too much. "Gabbing" is talking a lot, sometimes unnecessarily.

I love the way you did this post it gave a lot of information & a lot of guidance for those that just weren't sure what to write about I seen the comments you got from it too. I have been a little stale the last few days cause I lost my groove on just WHAT to write about & after I found something & posted it your's popped up on the side where it says you MIGHT be interested in this so I seen this & WHAMO here I am.
