Middle Age Ramblings

Where I Share My Thoughts On This Journey Called Life

Writer’s Block

I’m sitting here on my lunch break trying to think of something to write about. I’ve read several news headlines, caught up on my Twitter feed, scanned several blogs that I read, and yet nothing  jumped up and said, “Write about this!’

So here I sit, churning out mindless thoughts about nothing. Why you ask? Because I feel like I need to write something today. Every article I’ve read about blogging or writing and general says that I need to do this often. It’s been several days since my last post on this blog and I’ve had no ideas since.

What’s a writer to do? I don’t like boring my readers with mindless rambling. I know with the title of my blog, I am prone to a certain amount of rambling, but not like this!

I know there are many of you who are hobby writers like me who have this problem . Maybe some of you who are better writers than I am could help me out with this problem.

In the comment section below, list some ways you fight writer’s block. I promise, I will read them all.


Thanks in advance for the help!

  1. Hi there.
    Keeping a writing journal next to your bed can help, you can add to it first thing in the morning if you’ve had a dream and pull ideas from it’s themes or inspirations.
    Find something that inspires you- food, friends, renovating etc. then word map.
    I tend to get inspired at the worst times but I try to take note of the idea in a sentence or 2 and return to it later.
    Reading too many blogs can sometimes be a distraction and try not to stress about it
    too much, I’m sure it will pass and the creative juices will flow.
    Continued success!


  2. I have a pernanant page on my site called, Story Sparklers that might help a little bit.


  3. Some of my best stuff comes from rambling. Writing when I have nothing to write actually revs up my imagination and thinking engine.
