How I'm Going to get Past Writer's Block

You know you have writer's block when...

1. You think about writing about popping cysts (I said "think" I'm not actually going to do it.)

Clearasil Ultra Rapid Action Acne Scrub, 5-Ounce

2. Writing about the merits of maternity pj pants that you are still wearing sounds appealing. Newsworthy even.

A Pea in the Pod: Lightweight Maternity Sleep Pant

3. You consider writing about what you would tell Elmo if you met him. (A mixture of thank you and be quiet come to mind.)

4. Writing an ode to your grout cleaner sounds mindblowing.

Aqua Mix Heavy-Duty Tile & Grout Cleaner Concentrate - Quart (ORMD)

5. Having a deep discussion about how the Warblers' version of "Teenage Dream" is better than Katy Perry's version sounds ground breaking. Don't know what I'm talking about? Watch Glee.

6. Copying and pasting the script of Anchorman and highlighting my favorite parts has crossed my mind. You stay classy, San Diego.

Anchorman - The Legend of Ron Burgundy (Unrated Widescreen Edition)

7. I entertained the idea of documenting my next trip to Wal-mart.

8. Writing a haiku about our new sprinkler crossed my mind as I watched it sprinkle.

9. Speculating about why my neck hurts seems like something you ought to know. In great detail. I have theories. One involves a pillow. Another, a cat...who shall remain nameless.

10. I thought about conducting an experiment to see exactly how my husband would react if I spray painted our floors gold. This would be a vlog, obviously, as words would not be able to describe it. He would probably look like this though:
...but with yelling.

I swear...these are 10 sure fire ways to cure writer's block. I can feel it.

I think I preferred your last post over suggestion 1 (and 2, and 4 and 8). Number 10 speaks to me though :D
