The site is brilliant, I tell you! Check it out. If you found yourself unable to write, but needing - or wanting - to, you could visit Unbloq.me and discover a great, grand array of suggestions to kick start your writing.
On their instructions page, we're told:
This handy little gadget is here to help spark an idea. Sometimes a picture, a word, a small quote, or a short paragraph is all you need to get back into the swing of things. Clear your mind for a moment from the worry of having writer's block...
And that's exactly what I found it to be - a handy little gadget! Having visited the site this morning, I was offered such prompts as:
- "Vegetative State"
- "No wise man ever wished to be younger. - Jonathan Swift"
- "Upper Class"
- "It usually takes me more than three weeks to prepare a good impromptu speech. - Mark Twain"
- A close-up photo of an illuminated, transparent lightbulb with a black background...
Every one of these offerings gave me a sliver of an idea I could have run with, had I been so inclined to actually write about them.
It occurred to me when I started writing this that my own problem here on the blog lately has been not so much that I have writer's block, but more that I've got this huge mashup of thoughts and projects I'm trying to manage and get caught up with, and so when I sit down to blog, I kind of freak myself out and can't blog because I can't calm my brain enough to just enjoy the blogging. But I see the light at the end of the tunnel, today, and hopefully that's a sign that the blogging neglect that's been so rampant lately will be a thing of the past.
And? Now that I have this handy tool, it seems I'll have no end of ideas on days when I do find myself at a loss! Hope you'll enjoy it, too.
