Some tips you could use for yourself if you need to.
When You Know It Hits You
Not able to think of a good idea? In the middle of an article, but nothing good pops out? You’ve had that grand idea, but you aren’t able to perfect it into words? These are just a few ways people are stuck. And these are the ways I’ll be talking about.
My Mind Is Blank.
So, you can’t find a good idea, huh? That’s happened to me tons of time so you’re not alone. I’m pretty sure even the best writers out there are stuck from time to time as well.
Have no fear! I’ve come up with a list to help you:
Try to write something you’ve been doing recently. Work troubles? Vent them. Cooking? Write your recipes. Working out? Share your diet plans and techniques. Watching TV? Review a show. Vacationing? Tell the world how good it is, along with some beautiful pictures to accentuate the article.
Write about breaking news. When Osama Bin Laden died, that was the article that got me the most views I had ever gotten on here in a day. Be sure it’s written well or else people will look elsewhere for a better quality article with the most information.
Brainstorm. Just getting the old fashion pen and paper can lead you with some great rough ideas that you can choose from and even pair up together that will eventually lead to a great article in the long run.
There are many more ways to help, but I’ve chosen the best overall in my perspective that has actually helped me before.
This just happened to me now. Almost halfway into the article and I couldn’t think of a good opening sentence for this section. But, I guess I found it. Try to guess what technique I’ve used for this.
Write your true feelings. If you’re writing about a subject, in my opinion this is the greatest thing an author can do: write their own feelings. Sharing your opinion might trigger readers emotionally so that they’ll connect with you. It’s a great thing, but be careful of controversial subjects.
Write what comes to mind. Whatever you’re thinking – it doesn’t have to be perfect, because nobody is. Neither are articles. They’ll always be flaws but make sure it’s still in good quality. Readers notice if you start to slack off.
Don’t try to finish it right at the spot. It’s good to do what I mentioned above, but if you rush the idea out readers will think you wrote the article half-hearted. Try to really think about the idea and plan it out from there.
So, were you able to guess which ones I used? Answer: #2.

That great idea can’t come out into letters, huh? Whether it be too much ideas to choose from, or you’re completly lost on how to word it out, I’m here and happy to help.
Too much ideas? Put them all on a piece of paper. Cross out bad ones and leave the good ones be. Eventually you’ll have a much organized idea and you can move forward from there.
Lost? Try writing what comes to mind first. Don’t think it has to be perfect. If you don’t start writing, you’ll never have anything in the first place. Correct it from time to time to make it better.
None of the above? If you’re somewhat in the middle, such as you know what to write but don’t know how to direct it, write what you know first. Once you get going, you can shape it up from there that’ll allow you to point it in the direction you want it to. As mentioned above: You won’t have anything in the first place if you don’t write it.
My Purpose For Writing This?
Simple. I like to help people. It brings me joy when I see someone happy. Triond is a great community afterall, and I think it’s my time to pitch in.
