You are running out of ideas, you sit
down in front of your computer and stare
at the blank screen with a blank mind.
Your fingers are idly waiting for some action.
Writer's block? Perhaps.
You must have an ?Ideas ? file. Better
yet, go over your article file. There must
be a title that catches your attention.
Open the file and go over the titles. See a
title from years ago? Does it still appeal to
today's readers with a bit of retouching?
Ask yourself, what audience did you
write this for? Is it possible to re-arrange it
for another age group, an interest group, or
add a twist to give it a different flavor and
make it current for the same group you wrote
it for. Present it with a fresh perspective.
What other insights have you gained
since you wrote this article
Take the subject of diet or nutrition. The
different age groups have different dietary
and nutritional requirements. Add to this
lifestyle. Not everyone subscribes to the
same patterns of living. This topic has
potentials for expansion.
Your journal offers a wealth of ideas. It's not
about sharing your experiences, per se, although
that may not be a bad idea. Your journal
contains what lies very deep in your heart, your
psyche, your joys, your ramblings and more.
Topics that touch your heart, emotions you
can share, lessons that your readers can learn,
words that inspire them to open their minds,
nurture their spirits and more. There are nuggets
of insights from the depths of your soul.
Do you blog? You wrote something in the
spur of the moment, a fleeting joy, and tidbits
of information and more ramblings.
Pick a topic. Expand on it. If you wrote it,
hoping to share it with others in your blog,
rewrite it and give it your best shot. Voila,
a new article waiting to be written.
Turn your personal writings into the second
person, in the active voice, present it as fresh
as if it were happening right now. You can
almost see your reader nodding his/her head
in agreement, thinking, yes, I could have
written this myself. Why didn't I think of it?
Writing is not about searching for new ideas
all the time. Sometimes, it's worthwhile to
re-write and remind others that the past carries
on today and moves forward to tomorrow.
The wisdom of the ages is forever.
