I’m usually of the mind that writers block is a result of a not doing enough reading. However, there are also times when you have a million thoughts floating around your mental stratosphere but you can’t nail one thing down. So I decided it is time for a plan to defeat writer’s block.
Lately I’ve been reflecting on what kinds of topics I enjoy reading and writing about, so I’ve used that as an outline for content. I’ve got some high hopes, but if I rotate the following topics, it would cover some of my most keen interests:
– Theological topics
– A quote from any book I’m reading, with a short reflection.
– Weekly Prayers
– Thinking Through Current Events
– Reflections from St. Bartholomew’s Church, including the sermon, the liturgy, or my interactions with people there.
I think each of these has potential to cover a broad range, and this gives me some direction. I hope to effectively kill (or at least disable) writers block with this approach.
Do you have any other topic suggestions? Put them in the comments, as I would love to hear them.
