When You Can't Find Creativity, Write About Yourself

When You Can't Find Creativity, Write About Yourself

We all have those moments where we have sat at our computer ready to write an article and we ended up spending a good hour with a blank page. I have been there. It's frustrating, and you just want to throw your computer at the wall and say to your brain "what the heck... why can't you think of anything to write about." Well, here are four ways to undo writers' block.

Hope this inspires you!

1. Think back into your past and write about the lessons you have learned now...

It's not easy to go back into our past. It's not easy to be vulnerable about a topic we haven't told many people. I believe there is a beautiful message when you finally see the things you never saw before. There's a reason how we have a new sense of outlook on the hurt we went through. There's a story in the story. Your story is one that this world needs to hear because you never know how many people are going to relate to it when they press on your article or pass it on to others who are going through the same thing.

Your words need to be heard through what you really want to say on this topic. Your voice matters, so be willing to write about you. You need to know that your past, your outlook, and your pain deserve to shed, grow, and flourish.

2. Take any random daily routine you do and create tips for us that we would be inspired by.

To makeup routines, self-affirmation talks, home remedies, and how to get organized for the start of the semester, we all have our own ways of doing things in our lives. We all have learned different ways from our parents and I'm sure at one point in our lives we saw our friends do or mention something that made us go "wow I never knew that!"

As they say "you learn something new each day." I think we all need that new way of understanding or doing things. Those DIY's always catch us by surprise, right? So share what is different because it might change someones daily routine and make it even easier. Plus, I won't lie, we all love learning and passing it on to others.

3. Take an exciting adventure you have done and talk about it. Let us know what beauty came from it.

Have you ever wanted to share an idea or an experience with the whole wide world? But, you struggled to find what to write about? Don't lose hope just quite yet. Have you ever went on a vacation and came back to tell everyone how it went? Being able to share any adventure you have went on and come back to share the exciting self-reflection is the best in-depth story one can read.

You may think people might assume when reading that your article is boring, but in reality, it really isn't. We all love to read on other people's experience, to sort of seeing it through their eyes by their writing. Even if it was either a random vacation, small vacation, or a long vacation I'm sure you posted on your social media wanting everyone to know what was going on.

Well, why not make it better and write an article on it?

4. Take the day and find a small moment where you learned something and see what you can create from it.

In every second of every day, there's one main encounter we have that teaches us something. Whether it's a smile from a stranger, a barista who complements our jewelry, or someone who opens the door for us.

There are random acts of kindness that this world always needs to remember. I think when we are able to take day by day and understand how much good can come out of one single interaction, I believe that calls for one heck of a good article. It depends on how you process and what message you receive out of it that can create a new outlook we all can read about.


I hope this kept you from throwing your computer across the room and made you start brainstorming and writing! You are welcome.

6 Major Health Benefits Of A Crazy Road Trip

Take that sick road trip you've been wanting to go on, it's actually super good for your health.

We all have a crazy adventure planned, that we live out solely through our Pinterest boards. It wasn't until recently, when I myself took the trip of a lifetime with two of my best friends, that I realized how good road trips can actually be for both your mind AND body.

Driving = Hippocampus Expansion

Taylor Kellogg

Driving, especially long distances, helps your brain with spatial reasoning. A Sunny Afternoon explains that driving actually helps this region of the brain make calculations and increases brain power. Kinda like sudoku... but on wheels.

New places, faces and experiences = MENTAL WORKOUT

Taylor Kellogg

Think of all the cool things you will see, the hundreds of different people you could meet, and the awesome places you'll explore. This overload of new information to process will help your brain build its capacity.

NATURE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Taylor Kellogg

Fresh air and sunshine is the key to bettering your mind, which leads to bettering your body. Not only do your lungs get a break from pollution-filled air, but the sun boosts the Vitamin D levels in your body to put you in a better mood.

Good company = good mood.

Taylor Kellogg

Choose your travel buddies wisely. Yes, you'll be stuck in the car with them for a LONG period of time, but they also can help with your mental health. The happier you are and the more you laugh, the bigger boost your serotonin levels will get.

You (most likely) will get a lot of good exercise.

Taylor Kellogg

OK, hear me out... I know being cooped up in the car on a road trip isn't very good exercise. It's so important to pick a place that features some sort of physical aspect (I just took a hiking trip to a few national parks in Utah) so you can stretch those legs.

Your mind will thank you for finally going tech-free.

Taylor Kellogg

We're all obsessed with our phones (you are... admit it). Going on a road trip is the perfect way to go unplugged and give your eyes/mind a rest. Less smartphone/email/social media time means less stress.

If you need some backup for convincing your parents to let you go on a road trip, show them this article. You're welcome and travel safe!!!

Words, words, words. Considering how much we all need them, it's all too easy to get stuck in a rut with our vocabulary. These are 10 weird, wonderful, and delightfully obscure words that will brighten up your day-to-day conversations.

1. Prolix

Prolix means "using or containing too many words; tediously lengthy," usually referring to speech or writing. Now you know how to describe the next lecture in that class you hate.

2. Panglossian

Panglossian means "marked by the view that all is for the best in this best of possible worlds: excessively optimistic." Do you have someone in your life who is annoyingly positive? They're panglossian.

3. Defenestration

Defenestration means "the action of throwing someone out of a window." Not that you'll need this one, of course. Of course...

4. Nesh

Nesh means "unusually susceptible to cold weather." If you're the person who always has to have an extra layer, this is the word for you.

5. Deterge

Deterge means "to cleanse thoroughly." It's perfect for all your spring needs.

6. Eucatastrophe

Eucatastrophe means "a sudden and favorable resolution of events in a story; a happy ending." I'm sure you could use it for your favorite TV show's ending, right? Right?

7. Gwenders

Gwenders means "a disagreeable tingling sensation in the extremities, caused by cold; numbness of the fingers or toes." Hopefully you won't be experiencing much of it now, but who knows.

8. Crapulence

Crapulence means "sickness or indisposition resulting from excess in drinking or eating." And it sounds way better than "hungover."

9. Petrichor 

Petrichor means "The pleasant smell that accompanies the first rain after a dry spell." Lots of us are probably experiencing petrichor this time of year.

10. Futz

Futz means "to waste time or busy oneself aimlessly." And it sounds absolutely perfect for its meaning.
