Writers Block

Lately I have been finding myself having writer’s block. I think it may have something to do with the winter months. Cold weather I find sucks the creativity right out of me. I am sure this happens to a lot of people so I thought I would share my list of methods of fighting off Bacon (writer’s) Block.

Find the Sun – Yes I know it’s cold outside, but get out there and find some sun. I find taking a walk in the sunshine brings back the creative feeling.

Eat some Brain Food (Bacon) – Eating you favorite food can sometimes get the creativity flowing. That’s how I got the idea for this post, I was eating Bacon!

Get Moving – Walking around or changing your environment can help spark new ideas. If you’re always working in your home office and have a laptop, move to a new room.

Make a List – Sometimes you can’t think of new ideas because you have too much on your mind. Making a list can sometimes help you get all the random things out of your head. But be careful this could backfire and because you could have more things to worry about.

Find Inspiration – A lot of time if I can’t think of something to post I will look for inspiration on other blogs. Sometimes the best ideas are ones that you steal (borrow) and improve.

Make Something – Use your hands and make something, getting away from the computer and TV does wonders for creativity.

Sing Loud – Put on your favorite music and sing along at the top of your lungs. Just make sure your neighbors are not home first. Depending on your singing abilities they may call the cops thinking you’re trying to kill someone or you have wild animals running amuck.

Back Away Slowly – The last thing I try when I can’t think of anything to write is to not write. You can’t force creativity so if you’re not feeling it do something else. On the days you are creative, make the most of it. Try to get a back log of ideas built up for days when you can’t think of any.

If you have any of your own methods for getting over writers block, feel free the share them in a comment.

    Since you already borrowed some of my ideas, I’ll give you an original one especially made for your blog.

    How about you start a bacon art contest. Or just have people make bacon themed art or something? That could get interesting or just plain weird.

    :)

    That might be something I will have to try.

  3. [...] Life, I just sit back and reflect on my day and usually a topic will come from that. Sometimes I will read my Twitter feed and yes other blogs to get the creative juices flowing. I recently wrote a post about this here.  [...]

  4. I have been here before, but I haven’t been back for awhile since I was so jealous that you stole Bacon for your blog niche. Me and bacon go way back. DO you remember when Taco Bell- had BLT soft tacos? Maybe it was a test market, but it was nirvana…

    You should get like a guest bacon blogger.. when you are running out of ideas. Don’t let the bacon get stale, man.

    If you ever want to be a guess bacon blogger just send me a bacon related post. For example, if you ever find any good vintage bacon stuff!

    I am glad to know Wisconsin loves bacon!
