Finding something to blog about can be hard. Writer’s block can be a serious condition that cripples authors.

It doesn’t have to be that way. Especially when you are working on other writing projects and every ounce of your creative juices have already been squeezed out of your body.

Your blog is the first draft of your book. It’s what agents and publishers look at before they sign you on as an author.

If you write fiction, try blogging about one of these topics to kill your writer’s block:

  • The inspiration behind your work in progress
  • A story you uncovered while researching your novel
  • 10 Authors who inspire you
  • Your first rejection letter
  • 10 Movies that inspire you
  • The worst moment in your life
  • Books you wish you had written
  • The best way to track your site statistics and why you do
  • How your faith interacts with your writing
  • Interviews with one of your main characters
  • Family stories that have influenced your writing
  • How you found your agent
  • Interviews with agents
  • The moment you decided to be a novelist
  • How to survive the holidays as a writer
  • The moment your writing started to pay off
  • How you deal with stress
  • Writing conferences you recommend
  • How to carve out writing time while maintaining a social life
  • How to write a novel while working a full time job
  • Common misconceptions about novelists
  • When the worst time to write is
  • How to find the best time to write
  • How you use Pinterest
  • How to make your characters come alive
  • Bloggers you follow
  • How to avoid lame author portraits
