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

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 block...you 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 can...um, 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?! No...um, 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? Oh...um, 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!!

7 Things You Do If You’re One Of Those 'I Always Order Chicken Tenders' People

It's hard to love food but also hate it at the same time.


Growing up, my mom would usually have to cook me a separate dinner from my siblings. Why? Because I was ridiculously picky and wouldn't eat the same foods as everyone else. Trust me, it gets old. It's not my fault certain things just taste gross, you learn to live with it.

1. You eat something you hate just to see if you still hate it

I'll take a bite of a burger every once in a while just to reaffirm that it still tastes like dirt. I just have to know. Don't even get me started on vegetables.

2. When trying to explain what you actually like to eat, people give you major side eye

Don't ask me about my eating habits unless you want to get into a long, confusing conversation.

3. Eating at someone else’s house when you were younger was a pain

You hate to tell their parents just how much you hate the food that they gave you. So, you sucked it up and ate it anyway only to come home and whine to your parents.

4. There’s one thing on any menu you always fall back on...even if it’s on the kids menu

Pizza, maybe. Chicken tenders, always.

5. Trying a new food is a very proud moment

It's like, wow! Look at me being all adventurous.

6. When you realize you actually like some new food, that’s an even more amazing moment

Crazy times. This rarely happens.

7. Sometimes it’s the texture, sometimes it’s the flavor, all the time it’s left on your plate

Oops. At restaurants it's either left on your plate or your order is very specified.

14 Things Girls Do That Just Confuse The Heck Out Of Boys

Why do we do these things? They'll never understand.


As a female, I know there are things I do that other people don't understand. As a female who has a lot of male friendships, I constantly get asked why I do some of the things I do. Here are some of those "confusing" things.

1. That weird towel wrap thing we put our hair in after a shower

Honestly, I don't even know how I started doing it. I've just always done this with my hair after I shower.

2. Periods

Obviously they don't have these, but they really don't understand how any of it works. At all.

3. How long it takes to get ready

Well...we have lots of hair that must be dealt with, we have to pick out clothes, and some of us like to wear a little jewelry and makeup.

4. Skin care routines

Yes, we have to have very specific skin care routines. We have to keep our faces from getting too oily or too dry or too broken out, etc.

5. How many different bottles we use when showering

We have to have shampoo and conditioner. We need body wash. We sometimes need extra products for our hair to keep it from being to frizzy or flat, and we sometimes need extra products for skin for sensitive skin. The 3-in-1 wash just doesn't do the trick for us.

6. Going to the bathroom in groups

No girl likes to go to the bathroom alone. Usually, there's a line and no one wants to wait in a line alone. Also, the buddy system!

7. "I have nothing to wear"

Just because there are clothes in my closet does not mean I have something to wear.

8. The amount of hair we shed

I just have lots of hair and I can't help that sometimes it falls out...

9. The pain of heels

Just because they hurt our feet doesn't mean we're going to stop wearing them.

10. Having hair collected on the wall of the shower

If you let the hair go down the drain, it gets clogged SO quickly. So you just have to let it collect on the wall and then throw it away after you finish showering. That's just what we have to do.

11. The way girls can magically find everything they need to know from social media

We can find out what was going on at 2:41 p.m. on December 13, 2014 if we really wanted to. Don't question it.

12. Saying "I don't know" when asked a question

Sometimes it's just hard to pick something, okay, geez.

13. Why we're so picky about pictures

Everyone in the picture has to look nice. Why would we want pictures where we don't like the poses, background, etc?

14. Why we use so many pillows

The pillows on all the furniture just give the place some color and decoration. As for our beds, what's wrong with sleeping with tons of pillows??
