What Can I Write About?
Have you ever asked yourself that question? I do all of the time. I say that I will get up every morning and post, post, post on the various sites I am on. Then I sit there and think, “Well, what can I write about?” Staring at a blank document doesn’t induce one single idea!
I figure I will just get up and go do something else. At least that way I feel productive. Then just as I am elbow deep in dish water or laundry, a thought occurs that might make an interesting post. I should just jump to the laptop and write that up, but I already started something else.
By the time I do get back to the laptop, guess what? Yep, I am staring at a blank page again. I used to carry a notebook everywhere I went, just so I could jot down thoughts and ideas. I need to start doing that again. I also need to realize that people like to read all sorts of things.
A post doesn’t have to be earth shattering wisdom; it just has to be interesting. I am a fairly interesting person, so I should have lots to say, right? I just need to stop second guessing what I think might be considered interesting.
What about you guys? How do you decide what is going on that blank document? What are some things you like to read about or write about? I have tons of “stuff” stuck in my head, I just need to get it typed out and stop staring at a blank document and thinking!
See how nicely I typed up these random thought? I am not sure it is all that interesting but at least the page isn’t blank anymore!
