Writer's Block: Where to go to Get Inspiration?

Where I go for inspirations to write articles? Since writers are bound to get writer’s block, I keep a notebook handy, yes, I do. I keep the old paper and pen handy. I prefer this method simply because I write faster than I type. I know life will keep moving on and I won’t always be able to find inspirations all the time. So when I am relaxed and ideas are flowing, I write them down. One day, I will be able to publish one of my many dream ideas and share my desire to help others through the adventures and experiences of my characters. Until that day, here are some ways I get inspirations from.

1. Read articles by other writers
2. Read articles in the newspaper or online.
3. Watching soap operas.
4. Watching TV.
5. Talking to friends.
6. Dreams that you have: write them as soon as you wake.
7. Watching People while out running errands, sitting at the park, or shopping.
8. Write from things you love and your have an abundance of expertise on.
9. Writing book reviews
10. Writing to share ideas with others.
11. Life experiences that were negative, but you made it through.
12. Writing to escape a.k.a. fiction: write about someone else and things you would like to see happen or experience.
13. Capture your emotions on paper = poetry= creative writing.
14. Exciting things that are happening to you.
15. Express an opinion on a particular topic.
16. Reading my Facebook news feed.
17. Reading new books and sharing them through book reviews.
18. Reviewing products I have tried that have worked well or haven’t.
19. Watching my little guy play with his friends.
20. Talking to my husband.
21. The hobbies I have: writing, scrap booking, swimming, organizing things,reading,
and so forth. What do you like to do?
22. History is always so interesting to write about.
23. Biographies of interesting people seldom learned about it school.t
24. Interesting facts I come across in, just through people I talk to.
25. Past Work Experience
26 Brainstorming ideas
