"content", writing, blogging!

Last Update: July 04, 2020

Some of us have admitted to occassional "brain fog", "writer's block", or just plain can't think of anything to write.

Here is what prolific writer, Maya Angelou had to say about writing, (three quotes):

"NOTHING SO FRIGHTENS ME AS WRITING, BUT NOTHING SO SATISFIES ME. IT'S LIKE A SWIMMER IN THE ENGLISH CHANNEL: YOU FACE THE STINGRAYS AND WAVES AND COLD AND GREASE, AND FINALLY YOU REACH THE OTHER SHORE, AND YOU PUT YOUR FOOT ON THE GROUND ----- Aaaahhh!"

She also said: 'I ALSO WEAR A HAT OR A VERY TIGHTLY PULLED HEAD TIE WHEN I WRITE. I SUPPOSE I HOPE BY DOING THAT I WILL KEEP MY BRAINS FROM SEEPING OUT OF MY SCALP AND RUNNING IN GRAY BLOBS DOWN MY NECK, INTO MY EARS, AND OVER MY FACE,"

Another one: "I LIKE TO MAKE WRITING AS MUCH A PART OF MY LIFE AS I DO EATING OR LISTENING TO MUSIC."

Here is wishing each of us much success in creating the "CONTENT" we need to be recognized by SEO!

Stay safe and well!

Hello again Michael.
Writers block affects us all at some time.
I once read somewhere, that when it strikes, just start writing, anything will do, just start, even if it is complete gobbledygook it does not matter.
I idea is that once you start writing the ideas will come.

Hope this helps.

Hi Michael,
I have this problem of what to write more often then I care to admit.

Once an idea does come, I have to wait patiently first, can't rush it, then the flood gates open and I have to be told "3 times by my wife that 'Dinner is ready"

But I have to wait on getting that idea, no great concept I suppose, but that is where I start.

Good afternoon my dear friend, I'm here in the backyard celebrating the Fourth of July with my family when I came across what you had to say. It is one way that you can always get creativity, and Kyle is the one that suggested this. Just read through magazines and the light bulb will light up in your head, have a great weekend my friend.

In our business we need to make writing a habit. It's one that is sometimes difficult to maintain and easy to fall out of. Writing even a small amount each day helps us to keep that habit . Jim
