There really should be no such thing as writers block…
I think it is impossible to go through a single day without hearing, seeing or imagining something that could provide you with the genesis of a great story. But until you look and listen you won’t find.
It’s important to look because great stories add real value and color to our sometimes rather dull working days. People are stories and the crazier the person in my experience the better the story.
Having said that, people you might consider to be particularly uninteresting often harbor a great secret… fascinating. Or perhaps it is even more fascinating when there is nothing particularly interesting about them at all.
Embrace the chaotic and the mundane people in your life today and listen (and imagine) the stories they are trying to tell.
