What do you do when you don't have any ideas on what to write about?
I usually think of something during the day that motivates me, sometimes I have several ideas and have to save one for later or the next day. But today, I am at a loss. I want to write something, really in the mood but no ideas. Suggestions on where to find ideas when you're in a slump?
my problem tends to be getting the focus to finsih writing hubs but as for the ideas, i have a notebook that i write down ideas in when ever they pop up. I wont write a whole article just the idea, maybe some bullet notes then when i feel the inspiration i go back to it and turn it into a hub. This seems to help because although i may not feel like writing i have a list of ideas to work off of. Usually taking a break helps ideas to flow, sometimes simple ideas and everyday experiences can set an idea off in your head.
When I can't think of something to write about, I just don't write. Sometimes just opening up a page and looking at it and thinking will help get the ideas flowing though.
When I find myself wanting to write but don't know what subject or topic to write about, I look at my surrounding. I look at what others are doing or even try to listen to some conversations which I found having sense, and try to start writing about those things. Sometimes, I look at the newspaper and will try to find a word or group of words that I can start a topic with. Example, my article about breast cancer (which you can find here: http://mavhequijada.hubpages.com/hub/Br … to-Survive ). I was reading that time a newspaper and in the obituary, I saw someone who passed away because of it. I began researching about it and I wrote down all what I have learned and even my own knowledge about it.
Hope it helps.

How do you generate ideas to write about?For example, I take words and look up their definition. Any idea that pops into my head I write about, or try to form a story around. Sometimes I will take latin words and work them into a story, too. How do you form ideas for articles or hubs?

What advice do you have for other hubbers?I'm just getting back into writing on HP, and it feels like idk how to write anymore. I'd like to reach $100/month- and of course, I'm sure others would. Do you have any advice in terms of SEO, writing, and topic selection that is relevant today?

Where and How You Find Inspiration For Writing?

Do you ever get tired of writing?To write for HubPages, for example, requires new hubs constantly. Many of us also write for other online writing sites and only earn pennies per day. It is quite possible to get exhausted or even discouraged at times.
