Any help with some motivation?

i remember a few weeks back there were a couple topics about writers block and what not, and I feel I have been going through some of that with some of my blogging lately. I want to know from my fellow bloggers how do you over come getting stuck when it comes to creating topics or responses in general. Don't get me wrong responses aren't that much of a big deal to deal with , but how do you guys manage to stay consistent with new topics. Any specific methods you guys have to help get your ideas a going ?

You gotta brainstorm man! Zoom out! Think about what you're writing about. And think about if everything you want to say is said. Think about how you can expand on certain things said and you'll be able to come up with more ideas from that on what to write about. That's sort of how I do it anyway. Sometimes you're so zoomed in and zoned in on your writing that you need to take a couple steps back (zoom out) and see it from the bigger picture. When you're so zoomed in on something you often miss things or don't see things in their full picture. But by zooming out you can see it as a whole and then zoom back in and carry on from where you left off. Well in theory anyway.

Zooming out is a great thing to do! My mom always says sometimes you can't see the forest for all the trees... so yes zoom out every now and then to have a look at the forest.

Writers block definitely sucks. I'm not exactly sure if I've really suffered from it, but if I did, it wasn't very long. I've read that people can get writers block for days, weeks, months and possibly years which is an insanely long time to not be able to think about your writing. I've never really hit a wall because I'm typically writing about something I'm researching at the time. If I were writing a book about a boy wizard who fought an evil wizard in a fantasy land I'm sure that I would hit a block here and there because I would want everything to be perfect Any help with some motivation? Just pushing out whatever I could in the fastest time possible wouldn't come out with the best content and some people still do that.

To fight writers block I like to take notes about everything I'm researching. If there is something on the page that I'm not exactly interested in, but it could be a good topic later on, I'll take a note of it and save it in my files. This way if I run out of ideas I can go into my files and see what I thought was a good idea a while back. I still have around 200 topics I can fall back on to if I hit a wall. Hopefully I don't run through all of those ideas because then I'd be screwed Any help with some motivation? But I would think that 200 topics would take me a long time to get through. And even when I'm researching and writing about those 200 topics I'll be getting more topics because I'll be taking notes when researcing Any help with some motivation? So it's kind of like a never ending cycle of ideas Any help with some motivation?

This is a wonderful idea. Good thinking, Razzy!! I'm going to try this, myself!!

First of all, leave your desk and go for a walk or watch a movie or something to get your mind off it. Most likely when you try again later you will be refreshed and you might get some ideas.

A good way is to think about the topic or area in general, and then start to brainstorm some keywords or sub topics that come up from it. Most likely when you use them to search online you will get some articles which will inspire you.

To avoid this problem altogether get into the habit of making notes in a notebook. Just scribble whatever comes to mind for future references. It comes in handy.

I get my best ideas when I excersise and take showers. I don't know why. Maybe the increased bloodflow gets more oxygen to my brain.. Perhaps not being able to look at my phone has something to do with it. Any help with some motivation?

I have a notebook that I keep close to me at all time and I write all sorts of things in there. It is a very messy book and I doubt anyone would be able to read anything in there LOL

This is my work book and everything and anything goes in there, it is just my thoughts as I am working.

I often come up with ideas for new content while I am researching another post. Another time I come up with ideas to look at is when I am busy with keyword research.

I have 3 websites and you would be surprised how sometimes while I am writing content for one site I come across something that would be awesome for another website.

All these things get scribbled in my book. When the day comes I have run clean out of ideas I have a pile notebooks to read through and it is like a content ideas gold mine in there.

You constantly need to stay in touch with the niche you want to write about. Read blogs, ebooks, forums, anything that can give you new ideas. You'll be getting them in no time as well as learning a lot of new things along the way.

At least that's what I'm doing and I never had a "block" only the laziness not to write lol.

Writer’s block is the bane of writers. But come to think of it, what is the main reason of hitting the wall? Those experiencing writer’s block would always say that they ran out of ideas. And why so? First is the mental fatigue. Talking about the same topic over and over will numb your mind. Second is the passion in the topic. If you don’t love the topic, more likely you will hit the wall sooner or later. The remedy that I learned from professional writers is to take a walk and do some other things away from what you are doing. And if that doesn’t work then probably you need to do a little research to get some ideas of what to write.

I also encounter this once in a while what I do is to tend to some other things while still contemplating on what to write about.I could do other fun things to keep me self awake because it can really get the point that one is even very dull to think.When I keep my mind alert I will able to think clearly to come up with good ideas and when there start coming I immediately write them down.Those ideas can last me for another 5-7 days.That's just how I block up my ideas.Try and be thinking of ideas that would enable you to come with more ideas that can last for more days.
