Have you ever had one of those days when your blog posts or even your own writing feels dead, unoriginal, and just not worth it? I bet you have because those days are the worst for me when I just feel like not writing at all. Here is my way of bringing life to my writing and how I get my happiness in it! :D
Break A Rule. Say Something Different.
When you write your regular posts for book reviews or something your readers always know what they are going to expect. A rating, an opinion, a review. That's the thing. IT'S BORING. Sorry if I hurt anyone but it is most of the time and it's not a very interesting blog. But you know I still love you guys. Even for your own writing, many people have the same concepts and perspectives in a story as a lot of other writers and it annoys me.
So What Do I Do?
On your next blog post or writing project, say something totally and completely different. Break a rule. Don't be scared to go off your daily routine, it's the point you're supposed to be scared.
Scared is good. How are people supposed to not be bored to death by your posts or writing? Whatever kind of different you write, good or bad, people WILL be reading about you.
Write something you would never ever say. I'm not even going to give you a warning for that one, people will be reading your stuff anyway! This will make your work actually alive and boost up your confidence.
What if I wanted to say that even though I'm a total book addict I have never ever touched a single Harry Potter Novel? AND that I watched all the movies anyway!
See? Judge me all you want about Harry Potter, but that got your attention huh? It's also true.
The point is, go out of your regular comfort zone. BE scared, Be afraid. I would rather read a blog or a book that had totally different and original ideas rather than one that stayed safe the whole time.
