How to find Writing Topic Ideas

I must say sometimes is easy, others the search feels like beating a raccoon with broom. Basically you want to find ideas that are relevant to the product you are promoting. Not always you will make those connections and sometimes you need to follow the long mile to get back on track.

Now, that is not all bad news. In fact as it turns out it is the best thing that can happen to any writer. The reason is that by forcing exploration you will find possible new customers and great new audiences starving for information.

Sincere advice

  1. Play, games with children or by yourself, (this loosens up your mind),
  2. Read the headlines
  3. Do not discard any idea, does not matter how simple it sounds
  4. Use different type of writing formats, styles
  5. And the most important thing is to talk to others, they will tell you what they want to read.

Hidden Subjects

A short story! One Friday afternoon after a week filled with job search and delivering of finished goods for some customers I sat down to make sense of the week passed, recall all good and bad about it.

This is a regular task I like to do weekly, this is usually a good source for new ideas, or at times a source of knowledge for me and those close to me. If during that week I had a team working for me, we all sit down with our favorite drinks and snacks, we close the door, and silence phones, because it is Therapy time.

I call it therapy time, they call it sitting on the "couch" for doctor Jess. It is a random talk session, with no particular question or answers expected, just a chance to say out loud what we liked or dislike during the days worked.

My receptionist came up with her most regretted deed, a phone call from an angry customer. The call started as a regular one until customer started cursing, which upset and offended my receptionist deeply who hardly mentions hell or other insensitive words.

She wanted to know what I thought of it and what did I think of her when I learned that she was upset and hang up the phone on the caller, but most importantly she wanted to know how to fix it.

The rest of us were not disappointed in her at all and told her that to "fix it" she only needed time, because as smart as my customers are so are my workers, and we will discover sooner or latter if we did wrong, and then the answer will show up.

A few months later that same customer called talked to her and apologized and explain that he was going through personal miss fortune which caused him anger at the time, to which she replied with graze and forgiveness starting an even closer relationship with that customer.

Now she and her family gets invited to every Company Christmas Party, and works some of her time for them as well.

Do I need to say anything else? In this life and world there is nothing hidden from us, and all connects for good reasons.


Street Talk

Good job! Sharing your story fit so well, as a learning moment. Sometimes the best thing you can do is walk away. Another day things may be okay but when today's not safe, walking away makes for safety and sometimes a chance to resume later.

Great thoughts to ponder Jesse

Hi Jesse, you are absoluetly right. Our world carries so many happenings and these can all trigger topics. Yesterday we packed a container to send some items overseas, and just looking at the process triggered a couple of usefull topic items - strange as that may sound. I think the point from your story for me is to always be open in everything we do and every day to seeing ideas in our world, and also making a note so we don't forget (well when you are a senior like me!!). Have a great day Keith
