Writers! Think you have nothing to write about? You're hopelessly blocked? Take a look around. If not at the world at large, which is going through more significant changes than at anytime in the past century, then at the good old U.S. of A. Just to list a few topics within those borders to set your readers' blood a-boil:
- Two wars, and an urge by some here to get into another
- Sexual politics
- The new immigration
- Climate change
- Religion – – or not
- Alternative communities
Use one (or more of these) to set an impending crisis in play, invent characters to act it out…and you're suddenly 50 pages into a new novel.
Now, who said you had writer's block?
