Writer's Block

I have writers block.

Well, maybe I'm just not a writer, because I have "writer's block" nearly every day. Hence the reason I only write a few times a week.

But I have noticed that there will be times during the day that I think, "Oh, this will be so good to blog about!!!" But later that evening, as I sit down at the computer, one of two things happens.

Either, one, I can't remember that "great" idea that I had earlier. Or, two, that "great" idea is totally lame and boring.

For example, earlier today I broke my toothbrush. It's one of those fancy electric toothbrushes, that my mom got me for Christmas last year. One of the little parts with the bristles on it popped out and was vibrating all over the place. It was very annoying. I thought I could fix it, and pushed it back together. But it popped out again. So I pushed it back in, harder this time, jamming it. So now it just makes a strange grinding sound. Sigh....

Anyway, I was so upset this morning about my toothbrush, I thought, "you know, it is true, you never how much you'll miss something until it's gone." Then I stared at my toothbrush a little longer, wondering how much a new one would cost me and thinking about how horrible it would be until I got a new one. Then it hit me.... BLOG POST! Yes! I have something to write about!! WooHoo!!

And guess what?! I even made a note of my amazing brain storm!! The problem? When I sat down this evening I remembered thinking that I had something to say, but couldn't remember.
Then I remembered my note.... so I went and looked at it. Then I realized how stupid my toothbrush story was. (Yes, I know, I told it anyway. But in a different way and to illustrate a purpose, so it's ok.) :)

I love blogging. I really do. But I have the hardest time coming up with material sometimes. Hmm.... what shall I write about tomorrow?? I'll have to remember to keep taking notes!! That really helped tonight!!!

Hi Heather
I have writer's block lately too =)

I forget about all the funny things my kids do when I finally sit down to blog too.

I use meme's as a means =) to kick the writer's block.

I should take notes too for my Pot it's .

Thanks for visiting me.

PS So have you got a new toothbrush.
I also get inspiration from twitter.
