Dear inspiration, where have you gone?

Earlier this week, I read that the difference between a good and a bad writer had nothing to do with style nor skill but with PERSEVERANCE. It is actually a good article to read.

Perseverance: the quality of continuing to try to achieve a particular aim despite difficulties.

Writer's Block

And difficulties are everywhere! I want to write, but I just don’t know what to say. The disease has a name, it’s called writer’s block. I have already Googled it, and I am afraid to say that I have all the symptoms.

So here is the shortest blog post ever: what happens when you cannot find anything inspiring to blog about?

Do you still stick to your schedule, trying to publish a post no matter what?

Should we really try to publish blog posts regularly? Why?

I will update the post once I have found answers to these questions myself.

  • I do two things:

    1) I work ahead so that when I feel like this, I still have something in the queue.
    2) I try to push thru and create anyway. Some of my best stuff came out of a place of feeling like I didn’t have anything to offer.

    Great question!

    • Hey Jeff!

      Thanks a lot for dropping by, I’m a big fan of your blog, I always feel a bit more inspired to write after reading one of your posts!

      Great advice, I’ll push myself to come up with a blog post next week, so watch out ;-)

      Have a great weekend!

  • I know its tempting to romanticize it, but doesn’t it depend on the purpose of your writing? If you’re writing fiction and you’re not bound by deadline vs. writing for a business journal etc.
