Many people ask me:
"As a person who writes a blog post every day without exception, and has done so for years, what do you do when you can't think of anything to write?"
Well, they would ask me that if they read my blog, or weren't shy, or they were a real person, or whatever their thing is.
But if they did ask me, here is how I would answer:
I can always think of something to write!
But if, hypothetically, I couldn't think of anything, I would pose myself a hypothetical question posed by a hypothetical reader. Then I would answer it.
"But what if you couldn't think of a hypothetical question, or a hypothetical reader, or a hypothetical answer?"
"And your fingers were temporarily injured so you couldn't type, and your Internet was down, and you were really thirsty, and you were in a bad mood, and you had, um, I don't know, a cold, or maybe you were really sleepy?"
Oh. I guess I'd just show a picture or something.
"That was what I was going to guess!"
Nice job then.
"So what picture are you going to show?"
Um, none. I had an idea for a blog post, so it didn't come to that.
"If you had an idea for a blog post why was there a hypothetical question? Actually there were several."
That was just a coincidence.
"So, I think a bird picture would be good."
"No, the other one, okay?"
