Ideas for when you have writers block

6 Things To Write About When You Have Writer’s Block, That Definitely Haven’t Already Been Done To Death

Because writing is hard.


Welcome to the age of overdone content. I'm your host "tired writer with writers block" and today's topic of conversation is what to write about when you have writers know, because this article is definitely not something that's getting thrown together at the very last minute and I probably wouldn't have writers block if I actually paced myself with writing things.

Wow, so now that we've gone through whatever that was, let's sit down and have a little chat. Finals are coming around, you've got friends and a social life that's diminishing away and you have all of these deadlines you've got to meet for the various things you signed up for. It's a lot.

It's so much, that you have officially given up on life and you don't have any inspiration. So, what do you write about?! Well, I definitely can't relate to that (not sure if the sarcasm can read here, I actually, this is why I'm writing this article because you know, I don't know what to write this week).

Anyways, now that I've officially made this introduction as awkward as I possibly could have made it, here are 10...wait, no, actually 6 because I couldn't think of 4 more ideas...uhm, anyway, not important, here are 6 things to write about when you don't know what to write about:

1. Cute date ideas

It's almost Christmas and New Years, and what better ways of getting the views than to write a relatable article on cute date ideas you can do with your significant other. Who care if you're single and never had a boyfriend, that doesn't mean you aren't qualified to write about cute date ideas...right?!, whatever, on to the next.

2. Some fake deep article about friends or family

What better way to get the views than to write a letter to your friends or family about how much they mean to you?, sorry, I meant to say what better way to *show how much you care about the people in you life than to write a letter to your friends or family about how much they mean to you.

Wow, that was weird. I don't know how views got into there, that's definitely not the case....(wink, wink)

3. Dealing with finals and stress

It's almost December and you know that means everyone is going to start complaining about finals and how college is so stressful...because this is something that totally doesn't happen every semester and we're so surprised all of our classes have finals. But whatever. This is a prime opportunity to get relatable (generic) articles in about "dealing with stress when it's time for finals."

4. Something else about college

Because we couldn't get our fix the first 500 articles, people want that college content. Why? I don't know but they want that college content. So write about what majors match your astrological sign and studying tips that nobody else knows (you know, because you're the first person who thought of all of these neat studying tips.)

5. A listicle about x

It's no secret people love listicles. It's easy and they don't require much thought (I mean, are you reading this article right now.) So think of x amount of things, change your mind about that number because you aimed too high originally and write an article about something.

6. Make a listicle of things to write about when you have writer's block

LOL so relatable, am I right?! No...oh, the joke didn't land? Uhm...well, this is awkward.

See ya'll for the next article!!

Stand-Up Comedy Can Make The Most Stressful Days Way Easier

If you're stressed to the max, I highly recommend giving stand-up comedy specials a try!


Have you ever been laying in bed after a long and stressful day, scrolling through Netflix, trying to find something to watch? You can't make a decision on something, so you decide to try something new. Now, this could be a big mistake or you could find something amazing. This happened to me a few weeks ago and somehow I ended up in the stand-up comedy section. I have seen a couple of clips of Gabriel Iglesias, or "Fluffy," on YouTube in the past, but I've never watched a stand-up comedy special on Netflix before. It never was appealing to me and I don't know many people that watch stand-up.

After deciding to watch Gabriel Iglesias' new Netflix special, I was intrigued. Then, my friend told me that I had to watch Bert Kreischer's new Netflix special. He promised that I would find it funny and that he was really good. He added that Bert does all of his performances shirtless and it makes it that much funnier. So, I watched it and I've been hooked to stand-up ever since. Now, I've become a fan of the many classic stand-up comedians that many people know and love like Kevin Hart, Ellen Degeneres, and Iliza Shlesinger as well. It quickly became something I couldn't get enough of, especially after a stressful day. I figured out that even after the most trying day and even when I was extremely stressed or drowning in homework, I forgot about all of that. I got an hour to myself to just take a breath, have a good laugh, and forget about all of my problems.

A lot of times, I use the hour to eat some food while I watch the special or just lay in bed for a little while and enjoy forgetting about all of the things I could be doing. I've also learned some things. Like the fact that Ellen got her start by doing stand-up, or that Fluffy is coming to Columbus this summer to do a show. I also learned that even though these people are celebrities and have thousands of followers and fans, they're very relatable and more like me than I realized. We sometimes forget that they are people too.

I highly recommend taking an hour out of your day to see if stand-up comedy could be a stress reliever for you. This is definitely a topic that many people don't think of when it comes to relieving stress or getting into a better mood. I'm glad I stumbled across this new found stress reliever to be able to try something different and new and to enjoy a good laugh while doing so. If you're down in the dumps or having a hard day, try watching stand-up. I promise it'll make your day better.
