RANDTS will last a thousand years.

- Albert

Writer's block has infected our bohemian, in-house "photojournalist" and rebel with a cause. Will it be like HIV, the influenza virus or a headache? Nevertheless, unlike biological illnesses, writer's block can be cured with these few pieces of advice.

  1. Snap a picture and post it up on a blog with a caption. Try pondering on the picture.
  2. People have writer’s block not because they can’t write, but because they despair of writing eloquently.” Turn the critical brain off. There is a time and place for criticism: it’s called editing. If you don't want to edit post up a draft here on RANDTS and request me to edit your writing.
  3. Set a blogging schedule. I can blog at least once a day. Maybe you guys could do it once every three days or once a week. Regardless, try to stick to it unless you really cannot.
  4. If violence is entertaining to you try watching Happy Tree Friends. The violence here is inspiring.
  5. Read the blogs of your friends to acquire inspiration.
  6. Write up lame numbered list like this.
  7. Put up a poll using this site.
  8. Take each post one at a time. Don't muddle your mind with too much thoughts.
  9. If you feel down think about cripples like me or the destitute people of Africa.
  10. Take a walk in the early morning breeze.
  11. Look at pug pictures (eima's recommendation).
I'm out of ideas. Perhaps I'll update this post in the future. Do I write bad posts?

    Those are great ideas. I definitely should post more. I haven't been posting for quite some time...(T___T)

    I quote Sean Connery from the movie Finding Forester.

    "You write your first draft not with your head, but with your heart. ... The secret to writing is... to write, not to think. That comes later"

    These are indeed word of wisdom for writers everywhere. =)

    P.S. [Albert] now you know how i write my material so quickly... XP!

    Jaspreet, that's a very nice quote from the movie. Maybe I should try looking for the VCD...

    Oh well about writer's block. Albert, I've tried number one and five, but it isn't much help at all. *sighs* Anyway, I've blogged today. No pictures, just words.

    Cheers, Hui Wen =)

    Happy Tree Friends, yay! Joe enjoys that very much. Joe, you should watch Happy Tree Friends again. LOL.

    Writer's block is a normality in the life of a blogger; we can't run away from that. But there's something which is more threatening than writer's block: loss of passion.
