THE BLANK PAGE!
It's enough to scare any writer, the thought of staring a a blank page. The words are just at the tips of your fingers, yet they seem so hesitant. Yet it continuously happens to us, again and again.
This is a Way of Inspiration, a tumbling block, a style of writing, a good/bad habit, and a one-way ticket to the loony bin all in one! But enough of just looking at that page. Start writing.
Oh yes, the art of winging it, it's a delicate art that requires much experience and concentration. (I don't know if you can tell, but I'm winging this blog post as we speak.) There's not very much to say about this type of inspiration, just that it's when you power through for whatever reason. But here are somethings to help.
-Writing Prompts -Reading -Taking breaks -Watching TV -Don't Push Yourself
That's all I got. Happy Tuesday!

Oh, it's you.
Hey there! Long time no see! If I remember correctly it's been....Oh my. It's been a whole month. Well then, thank you for not forgetting about me.
Last time I left off I was saying stuff about that mid life crisis I was _______ years to young to have, but I'm so over it. Between the rewrites of Scrapper and the readings of incredible books like The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater and Stardust by Neil Gaiman, I've restored my love for reading and writing. So, it's my pleasure to tell you that starting next week I will continue my regular blogging!
