If you decided to click on this miserable piece of my self-obsession, welcome.
I love writing, I’m also an extremely annoying little fucker who publishes multiple articles every day.
My colleagues hate me, because “why the hell do you publish so much?”.
Because I fall into a deep depression, if I don’t — so I have to keep writing.
Not every one has the same reasons for writing though, I can mostly write about anything because for me it’s “survival”; I desperately need it.
Regardless of whether readers will view it or not is a separate matter.
It’s not for me to judge or estimate, because I cannot control it.
I wish I could, I wish I could strap you in your chair and make you read ALL OF MY STORIES. Well that ain’t happening.
Largely because I’m a pacifist and well…I’ve been forced too many times to watch Rom-Coms because of my family, hence I can empathise. (500 Days of Summer was the shit, though!)
So, what do you do when you can’t find a subject to write about?
Observe your surroundings.
Look around, find something that resonates, and exaggerate.
Physical and Virtual.
Now, physical is personal — so you know what’s around you; can’t force you there.
Virtual is expansive — and there’s tools that can help.
You already know what type of writer you are, at-least I hope you do.
You know what subject matters you care about.
You recognise your reflective voice.
Hence, dear reader, the world has made it quite simple for you to find subjects during times of “Shit I don’t have a topic”.
Introducing my dear friend,
Let’s see what’s trending today?
Now, let’s see…
I don’t care much for Facebook being down, but I do love the idea of Romaine Lettuce — let’s click and find out what that’s all about.
Well that doesn’t look good, looks like Romaine lettuce is back at it again causing trouble.
I love satire, I love taunting vegans…hmm.
Let’s go piss of some vegans, shall we?
“Vegans protest conspiracy theory to defame the spiritual healing powers of Romaine Lettuce”.
There we go, we have now have a topic, a category, and an audience to infuriate.
Good luck. :)
