The day I dreaded

It’s here, the day I dreaded. No, I haven’t got a dental appointment tomorrow, although that would be dreadful. There is no tax form to complete, not that I know of. I am not turning 40 or 50…I’ve done that and neither were particularly bad.

The list of things that I could dread thankfully isn’t huge, but after 1,000 blog posts and well on the way to a completing a 3rd year of blogging every day, today was the day when I really had nothing to say.

I blogged about this and said, there would always be something to write as I always have got something to say, we never get talkers’ block so, therefore, how can we get writers’ block.

Well, today I sat for ages and nothing inspired me. For the first time ever, no matter how hard I tried, no spark, no inspiration.

So today’s blog is a big fat nothing.

Back again tomorrow.

What to write?

Just start typing, something will come up, the longer you think, the more you will talk yourself out of something.

The title will often come from what you start to type and the great news is, whatever you type, you can go back and edit. Better to type something than have a blank screen and not publish.

We always have something to say, it could be about the weather, especially if you are from the UK, it could be about politics, dangerous, or religion, even more dangerous. There are literally millions of things to write about, the challenge is to stop your inner voice from saying things like ‘what do you know about that?’ or ‘no one will read that’ or whatever else that voice will say to you to stop you from doing it.

The thing is, there is always a thing worth saying, sharing, publishing.

I had the challenge today of what to write, so I just started typing.
