1) Keep writing. Sometimes you just have to push through and write when you are less than inspired. You never know when it is going to “click!”
One of my favorite encouragements by the Apostle Paul often comes to the rescue, “So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.” (Galatians 6:9, NLT)
2) Stop writing. On the other hand, don’t force it. Discern when you are about to go from blogger’s block to burnout. Step away from the keyboard, re-publish some of your more popular posts and take a much needed break.
3) Start Reading. Read great (old and new!) authors in your field and then, read who they are reading. Let their thought processes, creativity and good habits rub off as you continue to develop your own unique style and content.
4) Ask Others. You may not always be the source of your best material. The best artists rarely paint self-portraits! Ask those in your target audience what it is they are mildly interested in or wildly passionate about. Write about those things.
You don’t have to stay stuck. When I’m stuck… I usually just write about how to get un-stuck!
