Writers Block Ideas | 3 Best Tips

Writers Block Ideas

Today I am going to give you some of my best writers block ideas. But, there’s just two things I want to say before I start. (1) Sometimes it’s easy to have our own “formula” to write; a certain method or approach that we take. But if your creative fluids are running dry, don’t be afraid to try a new method. That is what this post is all about. (2) And, secondly, poetry is not meant to be cerebral – it’s emotional. So when I write a first draft of a poem, I don’t worry about logic, grammer, rhyming or syllables. My primary concern is to only write out of my heart. Then, I go back later and redraft it for grammer, rhyming and counting syllables if I want. But, really, all those cerebral aspects are just optional when it comes to poetry.

So, without further delay, my first and 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?

Listen to the silence.

The third tip I have for you is this: Just sit in silence and see what words come to you. If music isn’t inspiring you, if pictures aren’t bringing any words to you, then maybe you just need to sit and listen. You may be surprised what words start coming to you.

*Side Note: Nature is a great place to stop and listen.

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.

Let’s start off…

Today we are looking at a special Jeremy Fragrance interview, the number one fragrance Youtuber and video blogger. What do fragrances and poetry have in common? And what advice does Jeremy Fragrance have for fellow bloggers?

Jeremy Fragrance Interview & Blogging Tips | September 5, 2018.
  • What to Choose?

Joey: Let’s start off with the obvious question: What are the best fragrances for poets, men and women, and why?

Jeremy: I say some nice Whiskey and Smokey Tobacco Fragrances. Creates an atmosphere of an Oldschool Gentleman that thinks about life and what he has seen in life. Good example: Lord George by Penhaligons.

  • Big News!

Joey: So you’ll coming out with your own specially designed fragrance that will be for sale in the near future. Do you have any specific, “poetic” tag lines in mind for the promotion of your new fragrance?

Jeremy: No we keep it very strict simply efficient, we don’t do much on logos or fancy poetry lines all we want to do is to help people smell absolutely modern, very sexy, long lasting and save them time with the trust in our brand.

  • Exciting Readers.

Joey: Now, when you’re creating your videos, you’re doing something that is actually quite similar to what we do with poetry. You stand up in front of a mic and speak out words; words that are designed to create excitement and emotion in your viewers. So what tips would you have for us poets in creating that same sort of excitement and emotion inside the readers?

Jeremy: Speak with your heart, which is hard these days.

  • Blogging Tips.

Joey: Nonetheless, you have such a successful video blog – the top of your genre. So what one tip would you give to fellow bloggers who want help growing their blogs?

Jeremy: I made it my way, I wasn’t happy with the current market situation and did it how I wanted to see it as an end consumer. you can take this every market and business idea, this mindset.

  • Final Question of the Jeremy Fragrance Interview.

Joey: So now, one final question. What song or poem, lyrically, has really touched you the most and why?

Jeremy: A song by the Western Star who sang I hurt myself today, you feel every sentence he sings from his heart. its johnny cash.

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.

Get Connected | 3 Best Blogging Tips

It’s Time to Get Connected.

Why is your blog not growing? Because you’re like a person who builds a website, but forgets to connect their computer to the internet! In other words, there is no connection of traffic for people to see your blog. But don’t worry, I have three easy steps for you to follow that can help greatly increase your blog exposure, “This is How to Start a Poetry Blog | Get Connected.”

It’s time to get connected!

1. Make Friends!

That’s right, I said it! Make friends with some strangers on WordPress (or wherever you happen to blog)! Before you know it, you’ll be a part of a whole support group of fellow bloggers, with everyone supporting each other’s pages.

2. Be a Commentor, Not a Spectator!

Don’t you love when someone comments on your blog? Doesn’t it draw your attention to the commentor’s blog and build a feeling of friendship between you two?  So go ahead and comment on other blogs that you like! Also, plenty of other people viewing those blogs will see you and your comments. So make sure it’s a comment worth reading!

3. Learn to Link to Get Connected!

See a blog that you like? Make a link to it in one of your own posts! This is a great way to, again, make friends. Those links also build more exposure to each others’ blogs since the link will show on both posts! It’s like a web of connections, bringing greater exposure to everyone involved. A win-win!

Are You Ready to Get Connected?

Thank you for reading “How to Start a Poetry Blog | Get Connected.” Check out my original post, “How to Start a Poetry Blog | Best Tips for Beginners,” for the full set of blogging tips!

One creative way to get connected is by interviewing another writer! Check out Vita Brevis’ “Poet Profile: An Interview with Walt Page.” When I stumbled upon this post, I not only grew an appreciation for Vita Brevis, but also for Walt Page who, as a result, I began to “follow.” He then began to follow me as well. Just one great example of growing through a web of connections.
