My Writing "Aha" Moment (aka My DUH Moment)

Throes of Creation by Leonid Pasternak
This will be a pretty short post, but I had what was somewhat of an "aha" moment the other day. Really, it was just a DUH moment as it was something I already knew but had gotten away from.

Lately, I’ve been having a hard time coming up with blog post topics consistently. It wasn’t until I sat down to read a bunch of marketing articles over the weekend that I realized why.

I read about ten articles that I didn’t have time to read the week before. Very quickly, I came up with a handful of ideas for blog posts. And it hit me. Duh. I wasn’t coming up with as many blog topics because I hadn’t been reading as many articles. So simple.

Articles aren’t my only inspiration (books and podcasts are also big), but after it hit me, it all made sense that that was the biggest cause of my writer’s block. Maybe it’s the variety of articles or the different viewpoints, but they definitely get me thinking.

So that’s it. Nothing earth-shattering. Sometimes you don’t realize how a change in routine impacts other areas…probably because you don’t think about it (like I didn’t).

What "aha" moments have you had? What did it lead to? As always, thanks for reading and please share this post with your friends.
