For those of us who blog every day of the work week, sometimes it can be difficult to come up with content and things to write about. Writing everyday can leave you feeling burnt out. So what do you do when that happens? Being consistent helps readers be consistent in reading, so for me at least, just not blogging isn’t really the answer. Well, this won’t work for everyone, but here are a few things that I do to try and fix writers block:
1. Write a post about having writer’s block. Just kidding, but really, I think anyone could relate to it at some point!
2. Within your post, pick one photograph. Sometimes when I can’t quite find the words to describe the wedding or engagement shoot that I’m blogging about, I pick one photograph. I look at it and ask myself why do I like this image? Is it her expression? Is it the way that he’s gently stroking her hair and adoring her? Is it that way her veil is falling every so gently across her face? When you look at something beautiful and figure out why it’s beautiful, it’s a lot easier to write about it. Then just go ahead and write it down!
3. Describe the circumstances around the post. When you put yourself back into the situation surrounding your post, it’s easier to start to remember the details that you might have forgotten. For example, close your eyes and picture what the day of your session was like. Was it sunny, windy, rainy, or what? Where were you? Describe it! I think you’ll find the words just start to come then.
I hope this helps just a few of you overcome some writer’s block. If you have more questions, please feel free to email me at lauren@Laurenrswann.com.
