Why is it that the best blog ideas come at the most inconvenient times? Most of my ideas come to me right before I go to sleep or when I’m in the shower. Not the best places to take notes. I’m not one of those people who can sit in front of a computer and write either. As soon as I sit down, writer’s block sets in, I get a headache, start sweating, and … nothing. Not a single thing comes to mind. Is it the intimidation of having enough words? Can a sentence be a blog post? I’m better bouncing my ideas off someone, talking specifics, talking about a photo project, a way to improve a story, a direction, a style. So I’ve resigned myself to the fact that all my blog ideas will come mid-shampoo or that I’ll wake up in the middle of the night, reach for the notepad on my night table, groggily scribbling, only to find the next morning that I’ve written something that looks like “toast crumbles.” What are toast crumbles? Is that my handwriting? Oh well, I guess I need to step away from my computer for a while.
