    When you can't think of what to write, what do you like to do to spark inspiration?

    Sometimes I use the word vomit technique (which I have written about in one of my hubs). I also like to go through and edit my old hubs. For some reason, I almost always come up with new ideas while reading through them. Friends and family help too. I ask them for ideas and, although I almost never use the ideas they give me, they tend to help inspire me with some I might not have thought of otherwise.

    I go for a walk and just let my mind and thoughts take over. There's always something new that arises, inspired by the route of my thoughts, or by something I see while walking.

    I keep an 'article ideas' list - As  I'm going through my day, if I come across something I think might be helpful to others, I'll write it down and add it to an (ever growing) list of ideas. Then, if I am short on inspiration, I can go there and dig up an idea and fill it out.

    I read books or articles other people have wrote. I read over what I have wrote. A different twist to a story already wrote will make it unique.

    Hi GameApathy...

    There is a list of things I can do , in order to spark inspiration... :-

    # Listen to random music or songs you like or even the ones you haven't heard before.

    # Feel the fresh air in your balcony or wherever you usually go for it ( sounds a little weird but it helps your mind opens up both physically (fresh air) and mentally (collecting the view of surroundings in your mind) )

    # Read various hubs on HubPages

    # Try  spending time with your sweetie ...( that might intensify the feelings and words automatically entwine together  in your brain )

    And lastly, if you try coupling some or all of the options above , I'm sure something beautiful , unique and inspiring would show up in whatever you write

    I might look in a magazine or flip through the channels on the television.  I might find something interesting that might make a worthy article
