1000 Likes – Thanks to My Community!

ThePoetryAboutUs.com just reached 1000 Likes! What a big thanks I want to give to my community!

Thank you all for this great milestone in my blog! I put a lot of hard work and dedication into my blog to make sure that I am producing only quality content for every one of you to read. The support, likes and comments have been amazing and so encouraging. Without the community on here, my blog wouldn’t be anything.

I want to stop and take a minute to highlight the top contributors from my community so far. I hope you’ll check them out, too, if you haven’t already!

What’s been new on my blog lately? You may have noticed that I have made in a change in my writing technique; less free-form poetry, and writing more Sonnets and Haikus. I hope you like it!

Thanks Again, Everybody, for 1000 Likes!

The next one thousand will be even better than the first! And if you haven’t yet, please check out my newest poem, “Thin White Lines.” Also look forward to seeing my next installment of Poetry Blogs You Should Meet for Spring 2019.

Writers Block Ideas

*Please note. This post has been updated. Find the new version here: “Writing Block Ideas | Jan. 2019 Edition”

If you’re not in the zone, don’t write.

Yes, that’s my best advice for writers block ideas. If you have to force the poem together, then it’s not right.

“But, Joey Blue,” you will say, “how do I get in the zone?”

Today I am going to give you one of my best writer’s tips. I never thought I would do it. But, to date, I have only lost money on my blog. I am not relying on this to make a living. So why not share my ideas with the world, so that we can all make great poetry together.

My best advice is very simple:

Let the music take you there.

That’s my tip (very simple). Do you have a song that really moves your heart? That touches your soul? Then I challenge you to do this. Turn that music on in your headphones, close your eyes, and let the words start flowing from your soul. Let the pen translate the feelings that are rising in you. And let the music take you there.

But, if music is not really your thing, don’t worry. I have a second tip that works just as well.

Let a picture inspire.

My second tip is also great. If you need writers block ideas, then try finding a picture that really grabs your attention or really pulls on your emotions. Then, just focus on that picture, and write what comes from your heart. For example, what does the picture below bring to your mind?

This is a challenge I give to you for writers block ideas.

Next time you need writers block ideas, I challenge you to let the music take you there. Or find a picture and let it inspire. You may be surprised where you end up.
