Ever been in a state where you feel you have run out of ideas to write about? You feel that you have squeezed your brain into a pulp but still not even a single drop of idea leaks out? You might start to think, “Oh no! What should I do? If I don’t post today, I’ll be labeled as an inconsistent blogger and my readers will leave me!” Then you will change your schedule for today, “Today, I’m not going to eat, bath or even breathe until I publish a new article“.
So if ever you feel that you’ve run out of ideas, I’ve got tips for you!
This is the first thing that you should do. Do not panic! When you panic, you put a lot of pressure to yourself and you will not be able to think well. Remember that this is not a race. You should write at your own pace. Do not force yourself to write just because you have to. Do not be a slave to your blog where the blog commands you to “Write on me! or suffer!!!“. Do not compare this to schoolwork or your job where you have to meet deadlines or face the consequences.
Tap in your reserves
There are days where you feel your creative juices are overflowing and there are also days where you feel there’s a drought in your creative juices. Well, today is an example of the latter. So instead of thinking too hard on what you will write about, why not just get one article from your reserves and use it for today? You can always refill those reserves when your creative juices start to overflow again.
Focus on something else
I have experienced it that the more I want something, the lesser chance that I will acquire that something. However, the less I think about it, I would just be surprised that I have acquired it. You can call this reverse psychology but it can also be applied to brainstorming for ideas to write about. There are other things you can do aside from writing articles for your blog. You can eat your breakfast, take a bath after two weeks, do some exercises, chat with your friends or study for school (I can’t that I’m suggesting this when I’m so lazy to study in school).
Call it a day
If everything else fails, just call it a day and try again tomorrow. I’m sure your readers will understand. ^_^
