A couple of weeks ago, I had a bad case of bloggers block. I couldn’t think of anything interesting to write about. A couple of times I woke up in the middle of the night with an idea, but then I’d fall straight back to sleep and by the morning the inspiration had gone.
I had a bit of a grumble about it on Twitter, and someone suggested that I needed to get a notebook to keep beside the bed. It seemed like a good excuse to invest in some pretty stationery, and guess what? It has worked. I’ve not just got a beside-the-bed notebook, I’ve also got an in-the-kitchen one and an in-the-handbag one. I’m bursting with ideas. Whenever anything comes to mind, I scribble it down. Sometimes I turn the scribblings into blog posts, and sometimes they come to nothing.
It has been a great reminder that for all I rely on my computer and phone, sometimes reverting to good, old-fashioned pen and paper is the best solution.
