As a writer, there are days when your pen flows with ink and your hands write nonstop from the overflow of what runs in your head. Days when you have millions of ideas to create content on and you write on them effortlessly and you’re happy at the outcome.
What happens when it looks like inspiration has ceased?
As a writer and a blogger, you must have understood that your content is everything. Not just content, quality content.
Your blog can only grow to the degree to which your content impacts lives. You must have something that compels people to come back to your blog.
As a Christian or Faith blogger, your posts must edify and bless lives. It must come forth with power; either power to heal, refresh people’s minds, enlighten them or any other dimension.
Considering everything said above, lack of inspiration or the monster called “writers block” is your worst enemy.
50% of my write-ups and blog
Praying in tongues.
Study the Word of God.
Reading other Christian literature
This works powerfully. I am vehemently against plagiarism so I’m not asking you to plagiarize. I’m asking you to draw inspiration from them. You should have mentors and people you look up to in writing and blogging. Surf through their write ups, read various articles. Allow your mind get stimulated by them.
Songs are a great way to get inspired. Update your playlist regularly with songs from your favorite artists. You can draw inspiration from the lyrics and the Rythm of songs.
Meet or connect with your writer friends
You may not have the luxury of time to physically meet them, but create a system that helps you connect with them. When you meet with people who are of like minds with you, something within you responds.
Finally, understand yourself. Know what works for you and explore it. For me, I find it quite difficult to write in a noisy environment. For you, it may be different, so observe yourself and understand what stimulates the secretion of your creative juices.
