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….
