Writer's Block?

I've got several post ideas rattling around in my brain, but when I sit down at the computer to write I can't think of anything, or else it seems really silly and banal. Even more so than my usual posts I mean.

I need a way to record ideas when I'm in the shower, since that's when I seem to come up with a bunch of them. By the time I'm out and dry they've all vanished.

There's a definite correspondence between my interest in/enthusiasm for/ideas for blogging and my energy level, as in, how I'm feeling. I've not been sleeping well lately due to bad allergies and I definitely think that's contributing to my mental block when I try to write.

L told me that there might be rain in the forecast which usually helps with my allergies so I'm hoping for a soaker.

My suggestion is to keep a tape recorder, the kind that can record voices, and bring it into the bathroom with you. When you have an idea, you can just SHOUT it out, and that way you can listen to it later and remember your good ideas! :D The bonus is, you'll have hours of soothing rain like sounds to fall asleep to :D

I am being silly, but that idea is not half bad. Hmmm.

That's a good idea.

I've been thinking I should just bring a pad of paper into the bathroom and leave it on the side of the tub (it's a separate tub & shower, so it wouldn't get wet). Surely I could remember my ideas long enough to grab the paper and write them down immediately after getting out of the shower...

Thanks for visiting!
