    hey this is a good post! i actually tried that with one of my posts on my blog and it worked out rather well. In fact it was the faster written post ever! I think anther thing that helps is reading content from other blogs: maybe you get an idea from somewhere, or from a comment that someone else has written. Keep up the good work!

    Wow, I’d never really noticed before, but thank you so much for this, lately I’ve been in such a bad mood I never feel like writing, but thanks to you I’m back to it and I’ve started writing another book!

    For me, when I get the writers block I remind myself why I write. I write because I need to release what I feel inside. I write because when I write I feel more. After reminding myself, I let my body relax, my mind race and with a pen in my hand, I let it wander. Lose the weight on your shoulders.It is an amazing feeling.

    oh, sometimes I get this feeling while reading a book and was inspired by it, that sets me in “my writing mode” people have different styles in writing hence inspirations vary on emotions too..

    I loved this lol and it really helped me. I get discouraged because I’m afraid that my teacher won’t like what I am writing… again. But I still love to write and do get that “feeling” when I write something I feel good about and I won’t get that unless I try and hopefully it comes faster then usual with a dead line in two hours 😛

    I loved the post and totally agree. I’ve been writing for sometime, but lately I haven’t had the time to write. Now that I do I find myself drawing a blank. It used to come so fluently. Do you have any ideas? I thought it was a lack of mood, but I’m starting to believe it might be my lack of practice, or motivation to write. what do you think?

    As it says in the post, the act of writing will put you in the mood. The key is to keep your fingers moving on the keyboard even if you have to literally write “Blah blah blah” at times. Eventually your brain will get tired of writing gibberish and a decent thought will emerge. One of the most difficult things to do is resist the urge to edit as you write. Remember, you can always change it later so don’t worry about the words. Try that and let us know how you do!

    helped me get going on my essay, thank you for sharing!
    For me it can be easy to write if i care about the subject. It’s been difficult to motivate myself to write my school assignments because I usually don’t give a rat’s ass about the subject, but I’ve taught myself to make all of the silly little writing prompts into something I care about. for me, that’s the important part.
