“I’m staring at a blank screen and I have no idea what to write about.”
This doesn’t happen to me often but it does happen. And it happens to nearly every other writer out there. When I had a mental block, I relied on an old college exercise from English Comp: free writing.
I sat down and wrote for 5 minutes. I wrote whatever popped into my head without regard for grammar, spelling, or even coherence. I accidentally published it, people loved the idea, and a meme was born.
Every Sunday, I host a “Stream of Consciousness Sunday” post and link-up. It’s fun to write and it’s fun to read. Sometimes some of my favorite posts come from the exercise. Stop by any Sunday and link up your stream of consciousness post.
