Oh yeah, you’ve been there. Sitting in front of the blank screen, knowing its your day to post and you’ve got absolutely NOTHING to say or you feel that you have nothing to say, or in my case, everything you can think of you’ve said before. It’s like a fog comes over you and all that you think is – I got nothing.
So since I have nothing and have no choice (I hate skipping a day) I decided to research the meaning of nothing…
So I started with the Wikipedia definition – and Jezus – it’s depressing:
Nothing is a pronoun denoting the absence of anything. Nothing is a pronoun associated with nothingness. In nontechnical uses, nothing denotes things lacking importance, interest, value, relevance, or significance. Nothingness is the state of being nothing, the state of nonexistence of anything, or the property of having nothing. (But being a writer, I am gleaming something in the back of my mind that is definitely giving me pause. What if? Oh shoot, I just thought of something:)…
Next on the Google search page I discover the ultimate insult to my NOTHING blog – its already been done and BIGGER. There is a website for Nothing, and you can find it by clicking here at www.NOTHING.net. Clever actually.
I also found a ton of images about nothing…see below…I grabbed a few to share.
You know what else? Researching nothing (damn it) has given me ideas…
What if anytime you sit in front of a blank computer screen, even when the DEVIL’S WRITING BLOCK comes a calling, you research one word – pull it out of a hat and voila – ideas.
I guess the truth of the matter is that there is NOTHING that can stop a writer who wants to write:).
So here’s your assignment: Grab a word and share a definition. Someone will write a book about it or at least a website…

I guess we have to get the right attitude. 🙂
