Some Tips For continued Writing Inspiration
I've been writing quite a bit today thanks to some tricks I've picked up over the years. I thought I'd share some of that with you.
One of the biggest tips I can ever offer is for you to read. Start at some site you like and just let the links take you where they will. You can get all sorts of inspiration. You may even find a new site to love, or a site to hate. Who knows? Today I started at FaceBook and went to Elite Daily, the Washington Post, LiveLeak, US Magazine and a bunch of other places I normally wouldn't visit. It gave me lots of fuel for writing. Reading professionally written articles can also help you be a better writer. Since they have proofers and editors they're usually a good way to learn better spelling, grammar and word use. You can also learn how to make catchy titles.
Television can be inspiring too. The news is the obvious thing, but even if you never watch the news, browsing around the television stations for a while can give you things to write about. Maybe you'll be inspired by a commercial, a trailer, a show you land on or just the name of a station. No matter what you like to write about, the TV can actually help at times.
Re-read your old work. Can you elaborate on an old topic? Do you have more to say about it? Have your feelings changed enough that you could write a new piece? This can be especially good if you're a prolific writer. I've written more than 3000 articles in my time as an online writer, and I've revisited old topics many times.
Chat with people. Yes, a conversation with a friend online or in person could get your creative juices flowing. You never know when that conversation about salad or a significant other or your favorite show will turn into something you can write about.
