Some days I sit in front of my blog just wondering what to write. I often feel I have nothing to write about! But I have a few tricks for jumpstarting my brain into writing mode.
One of my favorite thought-starters is to choose a card. I have several thought-provoking card decks. I’ve managed to steer clear of traditional tarot cards.. they focus too much on the dark side of life and I like to keep things light and airy in my life. I like my “Trust Your Vibes” cards by Sonia Choquette, who wrote a book by the same name. Just now I chose the “Listen To Your Heart” card. My heart was telling me to write a post about jumpstarting my brain. Here it is!
Another thing that works for me is to write in my pen-and-paper notebook journal. I may run into the same “I have nothing to say” problem, but there I’ve got no international audience so there’s considerably less stress involved. Not that blogging is all that stressful. My boundary is that I’ll write in a blog if I feel like it or not at all.
Do you have any brain-jumpstarting ideas for me? Do you look at photographs, read books, read the news, or what? Or are you a blessed person who NEVER runs out of things to write about?
