The other day, I was trying to think of a topic for the blog.

I thought and thought (in between bouts of sobbing along with the Les Misérables soundtrack).

Then I clicked around on StumbleUpon for about 45 minutes.

It dawned on me that I had nothing to say.

I considered writing a post about how clicking around on StumbleUpon is a good way to come up with topics for your blog, but then I remembered that recent experience had proven otherwise.

Finally I decided to post an infographic I found the week before and almost posted before deciding that would be a cop-out.  Desperate times, right?

I started writing the introduction for the infographic, and something else came out.

A post.  A good one, actually.

It was finished in about 8 minutes, which might be a world record. Wait here while I call Guinness.

In my experience, if you have something to write, there’s no substitute for, you know, writing.  And the worst thing you can do is talk yourself out of writing by crying “I have nothing to say!”

You do.  You just don’t know it yet.

Try and see.
