After much thought I decided, I would write about what I was struggling with, how to come up with ideas. How to spark creativity. How to struggle through “writers block.” Writers block isn’t an easy thing to deal with, and it sucks not having an idea come naturally to you. But this is all part of becoming a writer. Sometimes ideas come naturally, other times you have to work for them. Sometimes you have to sit down and write without direction, hoping an idea comes to you organically by going to work.
I had a thought pop in my head recently about public speaking. When you are giving a speech or presentation you have to become someone else. You have to give a performance. No one acts the same in general conservation and when they give a presentation. There is a difference! You have to be genuine and likeable. But you can’t be the same person you are when having a beer with your friends. You may have to project that people would have beer with you.
