Overcoming Writer's Block

Do you ever have days when you just can't think of anything worthwhile for starting a discussion about? I know that I do and today almost seems to be one of those days. So instead of making it a day in which I don't start a discussion, I'll start this discussion about how to overcome this stumbling block. How do you do it?

I have those moments too. In the past when I had more time for mylot and couldn't think about any subject to start a discussion, I took my cooking books and started writing my favorite recipes lol Another time I took readers digest and I posted some useful tips about using stuff around the house to save money. There is always people who will be happy to learn some of that stuff. And writing the things down on mylot besides reading them, it makes the tips stick more in my head lol So that's what I do: when I run out of ideas to start discussions, I use my books!

I days that I just can't think of any topics to post, I would read a lot of newpapers even the old ones and read magazines. I would also be more observant of my surroundings and pay more attention to details and viola! I would see something that would really be a good material to start a discussion.

There are really days that I just cant think of topics to discuss. In those days, I read lots of magazines and become more observant of my surroudings and pay closer attention to detail and viola! I see something that might be a good material to start a discussion.

I definitely know the feeling of having writer's block, but if I do, I just try jotting down what's on my mind, and once I start writing, it is often difficult to stop again.

When I have writer's block and I'm trying to write a story, I put the story away. Then I take pen and paper and write whatever my mind tells me to. It doesn't have to be in a specific order and it doesn't have to make sense to me. Eventually I might write something I can use, and I'll incorporate it into my story. If its writer's block because of anger or sadness, I wait until I feel better to use that exercise.
