Have you already experienced that you need to write an essay or a poem in your school but you do not know how to start?
Have you experienced to be given a deadline to write a script or an article but no idea comes to your mind?
Have you already tried to write a story but you do not know how to continue or how to finish it with a bang?
If you do, you are not alone.
Sometimes writers cannot think of anything to write about or how to proceed with writing. Many circumstances cause this problem.
I have to be honest that it also happens to me especially when I am so tired and sleepy; when I am hungry, thirsty and feeling exhausted. It also happens when I am engaged in many other activities.
But I do not believe that there is nothing to write about. There is always something to write about. I just need to pamper myself first to let the inspiration come to me.
I need to be kind to my body so that it functions properly.
If I lack sleep and I feel that my mind is very exhausted, of course, I need to sleep first to allow my brain to relax.
Showering and taking a bath is very helpful, too, to relieve the stress and make me feel fresh.
Eating healthy diet and taking vitamins are good way to condition the body.
Moreover, I remember how another writer told me that a great foundation to write is to read and read and read.
A writer is a reader. It is helpful that we have read many other books, articles and literature that can serve as inspiration. It’s not because we copy their write-ups but it’s because we can learn a lot of things from them that improve us as a writer.
As of writing this blog article, I actually feel exhausted because of a week of sleepless nights, office works, meetings and stage performances. I feel that my body is tired and all I want to do is to sleep. But I cannot sleep because I am still on shift in the office so I need to keep myself awake.
I am surprised to be able to write this just to express how I feel right now. I thought I have a writer’s block but having been able to post this, I can say that my writer’s block can be useful, too, to write an article.
