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.

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 do this...

I hope it helps. Aloha, Chris.

Do you think its a good idea or bad idea to write about politics on HubPages?Politics, like religion, stirs up emotions in some people bringing out their, shall we say, darker qualities. Knowing this is it a good idea to rouse them with political hubs?
