WordPress.com blog keeps sending those topic ideas daily for getting rid of the “writer’s block” and encouraging its users to write more!
But, things never work like that for me! I will almost never ever do something because someone else is asking me to do it! I need to have a valid self-motivation behind it!These topic suggestions won’t work for me because, I actually don’t own them – they are not mine! I can’t think for someone else. I would love to write about some idea or thought or something which has actually sprouted in my mind and gets incubated there for a while when I find it interesting enough to pen down in my blog! That way, I am more motivated to write – to share my thoughts and feelings to this virtual world through my space – rather than just writing something because I committed to blog!
Also, recently I found one more interesting thing about myself – Its not a writer’s block for me – I would rather call it as a “reading block“. Because I don’t feel like writing anything at all – unless and until I read something in the first place – yes something! This something is mostly irrelevant to what I write. But to me, the writing spirit comes into active mode only when I start reading something! Probably my creativity gets boosted and entertained only when I start reading in the first place. If I get into this “reading block” – when I don’t read, I don’t write as well! I am able to get that energy and motivation for writing only when I read something interesting!
So.. how about you? Do you have this “writing block” first of all? Or you are always spontaneous? In case you do have the ‘so-called writing block’ – how do you overcome it?
