When you have nothing to write about, write about nothing

I’ve run out of things to write about.

Or, at least it feels that way.

It’s been quite some time since I’ve paid any attention to my blog or other projects I’ve been working on (just don’t mention the latest novel I’ve been working on, who knows when I’ll visit that again), and I feel badly about it. Not because I feel like I should be writing- okay, well maybe I do a little- but I just feel like I’ve run out of ideas. If you’ve ever had that feeling as a writer you know it sucks. Big time.

Oh, blank page, how I loathe thee.

There is literally nothing going on inside my brain that warrants any type of written word- or if there is, I don’t feel it’s worthy enough- and it’s very annoying. This writer’s block (as cliched as it sounds) has been hanging around far too long and it’s driving me insane. If you’ve ever wondered why writers get writer’s block, I couldn’t tell you. I usually write about random things that have absolutely no correlation, so it comes as a surprise that I can’t find a damn thing to write about. At this point, my cat could probably write something more interesting than me. Well, no actually I take that back, she couldn’t write anything (thank you opposable thumbs) but if she could, it would be a hell of a lot more interesting than this post.

And if you think staring at a blank page long enough will suddenly fill its blankness, let me be the first to tell you, you’d be wrong.

My hope, however, in writing a boring post about nothing is that perhaps the writing itself, the filling of the blank page, the act of forcing the words and letters from the tips of my fingers to the keys to the page, will be all it takes to stimulate my lethargic brain and spark some creativity back into my mind. After all, I can’t keep my adoring fans from my work for much longer or they may start dropping like flies dying for a drink of water.

That was a really bad analogy, but it made me laugh, so shut your mouth.


And yes, I was kidding. I don’t have any fans.



P.S. Please feel free to leave inspiring comments and/or topics of interest so that I may use them to write award-winning blog posts in which I completely plagiarize your ideas and gain overnight notoriety and am forever known as an amazing blogger and all-around writer. Have no fear, I’ll remember to thank you when I’m famous.
