I am having a “writer’s block” kinda week. I have written two posts, but after I read them, I thought that probably several hundred other bloggers have probably written the same thing this week so why should I just clutter the blogosphere with more of the same?
Maybe I’ve just got a bad attitude this week!
So, here I sit on Thursday morning with just a few thoughts that I would like to pass on:
- Every blogger, writer, entrepreneur, and business owner goes through times like these. Just keep your eyes, ears, and heart open and the ideas/words will return.
- Writing nothing is often of greater value than writing something that is either copycat or is just something to get a post up. If a post doesn’t reflect you and you concern for your clients, don’t post it!
- Remember the passion that caused you to write in the first place. Too many times writer’s block is the result of a perceived responsibility born not of passion but of sense of duty. Your clients and potential customers would rather see your passion than your duty!
Owning a business and writing to benefit your clients is a tough job. When the ideas dry up for a time, don’t make things worse by trying to fill your space with fluff. Your clients will better respond to the best of your thinking a little less often spoken than just more noise!
How do you get beyond writer’s block? What ideas can you share with the rest of us?
