1. Search etsy for cute purple felt items. (Because looking for purple fingerless gloves is important.)
2. Read all your old posts. The ones that you really liked. (This will get your head in a creative flow. Or at least remembering that one time you had a creative flow.)
3. Read other people’s posts to see what they are talking about. (Hey, imitation is the highest form of flattery!)
4. Don’t write anything down—just do it all in your head. See how long you can go and still remain focused. (I can write tons of posts in my head as I’m trying to go to sleep. Problem is, I can never remember them when I wake up.)
5. Grab a leftover cupcake from your daughter’s birthday. (Or any piece of chocolate will do)
6. Just write. Write even if it doesn’t make sense, isn’t funny or has no inspiration. Just write. (I may do this one a little too often.)
7. Google your topic. Plagarism is highly under-rated. (KIDDING. You can get good ideas this way because you might realize no one has hit on one certain angle of your topic OR you’ll find some points to disagree with.)
Huh? Oh, right. Top Ten. Where were we?
9. Turn off the computer. Just stop. Come back later. The internet will live without you.
10. Read Hack Your Way out of Writer’s Block by Merlin Man.
