Community Roundup Week Ending January 19

Blank Canvases

Do you ever look at a blank page in a notebook, on your blog, or even a blank day in your calendar and can’t figure out where to start?

It happens to all of us.

A blank canvas is a beautiful thing filled with so much potential. And yet, it can be so overwhelming thinking about failing in fulfilling it. What if what I write or do is a big fat fail?

The thing is, writing or doing something is better than writing or doing nothing.

But here are a few things to do to jumpstart your creativity:

  • Ask a friend or colleague for ideas (it works!)
  • Search social media for hot topics
  • Ask ChatGPT for ideas about topics (I’m still learning how to do this well)
  • Take a nap. Have a cup of coffee. Take a chat break with a friend. Walk around. Sometimes creativity follows.
  • Be ok with some posts/days not outdoing or living up to others in your past.
  • Believe that someone somewhere will gain something from what you share.

However you approach a blank canvas, don’t let it intimidate you. Just go for it!
