When I first started writing I had three concerns;

  • What if no one reads my work?
  • What if people do read it, berate me and laugh in my face because it is so terrible?
  • What if I run out of writing ideas, fall into a deep, unshakeable pit of writer’s block despair and never return to the keyboard again?

Thankfully, I never allowed any of these worries to stop me from trying and I’m happy to say, for the most part, none of said concerns came to fruition.

Find New Writing Ideas by Experiencing the World

This is not what I mean.

When I say find new writing ideas by experiencing the world what I really mean is; get up, lace up your shoes, get out of the house and go do something.

Because everywhere you go and in everything that you do, there are stories just waiting to be told.

Whether you are;

  • Walking in the park.
  • Going for a jog.
  • Hitting the gym.
  • Taking the dog for a walk.
  • Going for a meal.
  • Visiting friends.
  • Playing with the kids.
  • Exploring new hobbies.
  • Or whatever else you fill your days with.

There is always something you can write about and share with your readers.

Think about it.

You can share your thoughts and feelings on an experience. Talk about the things you saw, the people you…
