    I just keep posting on the forums of different sites until I get an idea! In the end, your still writing. Think about it, I have 1400+ posts, each post if on average 12 words I believe.

    Thats more then 20,000 words most likely!

      I would look in the idea bank. Or, the questions thingy.

    What do you do on weekends? What do you do for fun? What are your hobbies?

    Those are all things you can write about.

    Sometimes when this happens to me, I find something completely different to write about. Check the ideabank and answers section to see if anything sounds like something you'd be interested in writing about or researching if you don't know anything about the topic.

    Sometimes, this is a good way to get yourself writing. You may have to do this a few times, but usually it'll get you thinking about something else that you really enjoy that you could write about.

    It may be painful writing about something not in your comfort zone, and it may feel a little forced at first. It's just a suggestion. It's worked for me in the past.

      oops, just saw this and yes, it is connected to hubpages. Its a spot for ideas. I think you can find it by clicking on "my account".

    I've found that by simply reading other people's hubs will generate enough ideas for you...That way you help others by helping yourself!
