If you are feeling drained and not inspired anymore, this post will help you overcome the writer’s block by providing you with 80 fashion blog post ideas, so that you won’t have to worry about it again. Shall we?
I guess you clicked this post because you are in an urgent need of inspiration. You have already written many posts on your fashion blog, and can’t possibly think of a new idea to blog about. No need to panic. It happens to every blogger at some point and it happened to me too. I’m here to help you overcome it by sharing with you 80 post ideas you could possibly blog about and haven’t thought yet, but also tell you about the actions I take to prevent such situations.
But first, what is the writer’s block?
If you have a blog or like to read other blogs, there is no way you haven’t crossed paths with the term “writer’s block”. This is how we call the failure to create written content because there is something preventing us from doing it. Usually, it’s the lack of new ideas that make us lose the mood for writing. It can last from minutes to days and years and can be a real problem, especially when there are deadlines to catch up.
Causes of the writer’s block.
The causes are too many and vary from one to another, however, I’m going to talk about the most common ones.
- The Fear of Being Judged: Many writers are afraid to put their ideas to paper, because of what others may think. I used to care about that a lot when I started this blog and occasionally I still struggle with that.
- Overanalyzing (Paralysis Analysis): The constant judgment of every little detail in your writing, besides not doing any good to you and your writing style, it also prevents you from being creative and putting your thoughts on paper in the first place.
- Stress: Being stressed prevents you from thinking clearly and being creative. The only thing a stressed person can think about is the stress itself.
- Lack Of Motivation: Being unmotivated for a task usually leads to procrastination. Chances are that you are not going to start writing at all.
- Exhaustion: If you are physically and mentally exhausted, your brain processes facts slower than usual, so most likely you won’t be able to brainstorm.
- Distractions: Most people have much stuff to do and think about, other than writing, which occupy a big place in their minds and steal away some (or all) of their creativity.
We mentioned some of the things that cause someone to have a writer’s block and that’s great, but the question remains:
How can we be saved of the trouble when having it?
I admit it’s a tough question with many different answers. I’ve struggled quite a few times with the writer’s block myself and it feels really frustrating. Each time the solution was not the same as the previous one. The important thing is to find what works for you.
Here are the things that have worked for me in the past:
–Step away from whatever you are trying to write and do something else. Go to the gym, paint, take your dog for a walk, call a friend, read a book etc. There is no point in looking at your black screen for hours. Start doing exciting stuff and you’ll be back to writing when you least expect it.
–Freewrite. Write whatever comes to your mind. Anything. Don’t think about spelling or grammar and just write. You may change subjects and write about funny stuff, but it will help your creative juices flowing and then you can go back to your writing.
–Remember why you started writing in the first place. Remember the excitement you felt in the idea of putting all your creativity into words and how you could help people change their lives. The least that can happen is to feel motivated again. The best? The best is your muse to return and go back to writing in no time. Because there isn’t a harder thing than writing for something you feel uninspired and unmotivated.
The things that are mentioned above are the ones to try AFTER you have your writer’s block. However, is there anything you can do to prevent it?
Yes, there is!
There are some things that can minimize the possibilities of having a writer’s block again. I’ve tried them myself and I can guarantee you that they work!
My “not-so-secret” secrets on how to say goodbye to the writer’s block.
-Work in a clean place without any distractions. I’m a messy person myself, so you can imagine that my office is not always tidy. Of course, that, along with my smartphone, was causing concentration problems to me. Now, every time before I sit down to write, I clean my office and leave my phone outside. These two little actions have done miracles for me!
-Make notes every time you feel inspired. Whether you are outside, or ready to sleep or wherever and feel like your mind is going to explode from inspiration, take some time and make notes. Next time you want to write about something take a look at them. This is a guaranteed way to trigger your mind to produce more ideas on the topic you want to write about.
-Have a schedule. Every day my aim is to write at least 500 words, even when I don’t feel like it. So, I recommend setting a period of time in which your task will be to write. If you write 500 words a day, can you imagine how many words you will have written in a year?
-Set deadlines. That is not very easy to do, but when you set deadlines you are accountable to yourself and it’s easier to stick to a writing schedule.
-Write about things you know well. It’s much easier to write about stuff you already know, than writing about topics you haven’t got the slightest idea about.
-Plan Ahead. Make a plan for the week or month and stick to it. Write about all the posts you would like to blog about and make notes for each. This way when the writing time comes you won’t need to think a lot, just blog about a topic you have already brainstormed about. My list of the 80 fashion blog post ideas is a great place to start if you don’t have any more ideas to write about in your fashion/beauty blog. Some of them I have already posted in mine whereas others I’m planning to post in the future.
