How does Writer’s Block hit you?
For me, it’s as if there’s a brick wall between me and my keyboard.
I feel I’ve written everything I know and there’s nothing left to write about. I have found that keeping lists of ideas to dip into can help get my creative juices flowing.
Lists such as these 20 Tips below. I hope you find them useful.

- Check out current trends and write about one that affects your niche.3. Use Google Search suggestions to help you find topics. Type in your main word(s) and see the main ideas they give you.
