Standing Up to Writer’s Block with DailyPost

Well, I certainly won’t be having a problem with Writer’s Block anytime soon, not with all the topics by DailyPost, and the surplus of topics I developed with a friend of mine.

Here’s some prompts you might spot popping up sometime when there’s no reviews or our other typical topics (feel free to use some for your blog!):

1. Write about your life’s biggest adventure.
2. Write about your top ten hobbies – elaborating on each.
3. Write an interview between you and someone else.
4. Write about the most interesting conversation you’ve ever had (and can remember).
5. Write a review on the best movie you have ever seen.
6. Write your own step-by-step process to blog fame.
7. What is the most beautiful place you’ve ever seen? (e.g. Paris: The Eiffel Tower at Sunset, your well-furnished backyard, etc.)
8. Write about your life from the eyes of another person.
9. A Day in Another’s Shoes: Write about what it would be like to live a life in drastically different conditions than yours. (e.g. In poverty, in great wealth, as royalty, as a news broadcaster, etc.)
10. Write a brief poem (a minimum of 100 words – afterall, this is WordPress) about your day today.
11. The Best Thing I Ever Ate… Just like the TV show, describe the best thing you’ve ever eaten. Don’t forget to include all the mouth-watering details, and having your readers come back for seconds!

12. Write about one of your biggest social blunders, the likes of which you tend to share, or be reminded of, among friends and family.
13. Write a Q&A on a subject you specialize in.
14. What woulld your dream life look like?
15. What would world peace look like?
16. Write about an important figure in history who has drastically changed the way you personally live – for the better.
17. Share your favorite food or drink recipe with your readers – whether you have made it yourself, or at the expense of another.
18. Envision what your life will look like 5 years from now. Any drastic changes? Big achievements? Notable actions?
+10 years
+20 years
+30 years
19. If you were the President/Leader/King, what would you do?
20. If you had a talk show on TV, what would you do? Who would you invite?

21. If you could purchase anything (donations included as a “purchase”), all funds provided at no catch or condition, what would it be?
22. If you could visit any country in the world, expenses aside, where would it be?
23. If you owned a massive, multi-billion dollar frachise, what would be the company’s primary focus?
24. Write your favorite quote and what it means to you.
25. Blog about something (or a subject) you’ve NEVER blogged about before
26. If you could have anyone view your blog, who would it be? (e.g. Your favorite teacher, Harry Potter, Leonardo DiCaprio, etc.)

Here’s some more [topics that “specialize in the ridiculous”] a friend and I thought up:
27. If you could pilot any vehicle, what would it be? (Gundams and Death Star included)
28. Did you read about a character that met a tragic end, much to your distaste? How would change the storyline if you were the writer?
29. If you could have any EPIC super power, what would it be?
30. Which two beings would create the most epic duel-to-the-death scenario?
31. What kind of office supply would you be, and why? (e.g. “I’d be like a rubber band because you can only stretch me so far before I snap, a blank paper waiting for ideas, etc.)

32. If your life was a play/movie, which actors would you choose to play the main characters?

33. If you could go back in time and redo any moment in your life, which moment would that be, and why?

34. What is your opinion regarding the End of the World? Is it all just superstition, or does some of the hysteria ring true?

35. If you could develop a video game, what would it be about? And through which company would you work?

36. What is your dream job? Have you achieved it?

37. What is the WORST thing you’ve ever eaten? Or alternatively, what would you never eat? [e.g. raw snail]

38. If you could start your own country, what would it be called?

+ What would its infrastructure (economic basis) be based upon?
+ How would you “fuel” your nation? Would you go Eco-Friendly, or the way of Oil?

  1. Good stuff–I think I’ll bookmark this page and return for ideas 🙂

    Thank you, Adventure Writer!

  2. I’m glad you find them useful!
    All these topics sprouted from DailyPost asking it’s readers to come up with topics of their own – so I went to work thinking up whatever topics I could – no matter how differential. Went a little overboard, but I can’t say the topics we came up with won’t prove helpful.

  3. Pretty cool

  4. I like so many suggestions here:

    #13 – About being happy positive. One of my friends said, if they find me sad, it must be the end of the world – too much exaggeration huh 😀

    #19 – I love to lead 🙂

    #22 – I want to travel different countries to find the right place to build a family house and settle a family root. Right now I am a nomad.

    #26 – I will be thrilled to have Leonardo DiCaprio view, comment and subscribe to my blog, it wouldn’t hurt if Oprah & Paulo Coelho included 😀

    #29 – I love the word epic and I love super powers 🙂 I enjoyed the movie “What Women Want”.

    • Indeed! It’s great you’ve found so many topics you like. I always enjoy reading comments where people respond with their answers and opinions.
      So thanks for the comment! It’d certainly be amazing to have a movie star, or otherwise famous person view your blog, wouldn’t it? I’m content with all the people around the world who have visited my blog though!

      • Re: all the people around the world who have visited my blog – So true!!! It’s amazing how technology can connect people in the name of great words/photos/ideas 🙂

  5. Hi there! I’m surprised to see that I’ll probably be answering your Question #16 in my next post! Great minds think alike:). I hope you don’t mind if I pinch a few 🙂 like #12, #13, #18 & #24. Ciao, K
