    What do you do when you can't think of anything to write about?

    Where do you get inspiration?

    Look out of the window and write what you see.  Look through a - 'What happened This Day', then research it, you'll soon start writing.

    I read, and it can be anything. Whether it's poetry, a reference book, Twitter or the newspaper. It really doesn't matter. When I read, I get ideas to write. Unfortunately, sometimes, I'll have an idea, but I won't be motivated enough to get it out.

    I downloaded the book "Walden" by Thoreau (at Librivox) and have it on my MP3. I walk on the beach and listen to the words of that great man describing his life by the pond. That is enough to motivate me to strive. I may never reach his level but at least I can try.

    What do I do when I can't think of anything to write about? I do my laundry. *Kidding* Creativity is unlimited! I get my inspirations from my "sky is the limit adventure" and if at times, I get blank, I read over a cup of coffee and more often than not Kaboom! Some ideas are then popping out of my head or simply walk around the block. I try to capture the beauty of my surroundings and perhaps write about it. Daily journal-it helps. I'd dig my journal from time to time and excerpt some stuff from what I've experienced and have written before. Often the idea is there, it's the motivation to write that is hard to get by.

    I start asking questions...on HP

    Often the answers inspire me to write on a new topic...

    I browse through a magazine, read a book, or even go through the news. Anything can cause interest or imagination.

    Sometimes, I will go out with my camera and take pictures of random things with the hope that I will have an inspirational shot.

    I invited hubbers to add their own tips in the comments section, and I gotta say, I think many of their ideas deserved hubs of their own.  smile

    I hope it helps.  Aloha, Chris.
