Have you ever sat down to write a book, begin a new scene, your blog, a short story and your mind went blank? Most of us have. There’s something about finally being able to sit at our desks, fingers on keyboard and, if you’re like me, there’s nothing.
I know we can get idea from everywhere; riding down the freeway, at the store, or park. Ideas are everywhere. We just have to look around at the newspapers, online, watch people, and there are thousands of potential stories waiting to be written. But, then, something happens to them. They’re gone by then time we sit in front of our computer. There must be something about putting our fingers on the correct keys that wipes our memories clean.
Later, as we add more ideas, we should review our lists and delete some. We may use only one out of ten, but who knows, it may be the next book on the New York Times Bestselling Author list.
How do you reboot yourself after being away from writing for a while?
