What Should I Blog About?

 

This is part of an ongoing series here at MomCrunch, see here and here for more talk on writer’s block and more prompts!

“Your most brilliant ideas come in a flash, but the flash comes only after a lot of hard work.  Nobody gets a big idea when he is not relaxed, and nobody gets a big idea when he is relaxed all the time.” — Edward Blakeslee

Open an encyclopedia to a random page (or if you don’t have an encyclopedia at home – who does anymore?! go to google and click “I feel lucky”) and read a random entry. You might get one good detail (the “sacred ibis” was revered in ancient Egypt) or a whole line of exploration (St. Dunstan’s, a British organization that cares for those blinded in war, was founded by a blind newspaper owner) to shake you out of your writer’s block stupor.

Waking up the left brain with some random facts can often give a nice refreshing “breath” of fresh air to the right brain. Good luck!

Hat tip to the book The Pocket Muse by Monica Wood for the writing inspirations!
