BlogHer@Home - Writer's Block?

This week’s BlogHer@Home question is “What do you do when you are suffering from writers block?”

I often sit here with a blank page staring at me. I often have no idea what to say, but usually I have a lot of little things that I want to share, typically a bit too long for Twitter but not quite long enough for their own post. 

Therefore? When I have nothing specific to write about, I tend to ramble. To form a list and write about a lot of things instead of one broad topic. Sometimes, I can't do that, because there are things I don't or can't share on here. 

On those occasions, I just don't write. I'm not opposed to the idea of skipping a week, but usually if I haven't posted in 4 or 5 days, you'll find a rambly post.

It's like we tell the kids - if you don't know what to write about? Just write. Something. Anything. Take fifteen minutes and spill it all out. Something will come.
