Tabula Rasa

I’m gearing up for the kids to go back to school in a few weeks and I want to start writing another book.  But, just like last year, I’m coming up blank.  My mind feels like a tabula rasa.  An empty slate.  Idealess.

What to do?

Every writer has a way to come up with new ideas for books.  Me, not so much.  I don’t know how or why the ideas entered my mind for the four novels I’ve written.  It was more of a lightening strike than anything that I “did”.  The ideas came to me totally out of the blue.

Now I’m trying to figure out what to write again and nothing is coming to mind.  Maybe I should read the Stephen King book on writing that I bought several months back that’s languishing on my table.  Perhaps that will give me the inspiration I’m looking for.

But I know there’s a ton of advice out there for me and I’ve read a lot of it, I’m sure.  But right now I’m drawing a blank about that as well.

A little help needed please….
