Are you writing an interesting article? Are you writing a book? Whatever you are writing about, is there a time when you feel like you have nothing to write about? This is when you need to come up with new ideas and the best way is to come up with a list of a hundred things to write about.

There are many things to write about in the world. You can babble about anything you want personally, professionally or childishly. Brainstorming would definitely be helpful since you will need to come up with a hundred ideas for your list.

Example for list of 100 things to write about:

1. 100 Things I’m Grateful For
2. 100 Ways I Could Nurture Myself
3. 100 Ways I Sabotage Myself
4. 100 Things I’m Good At
5. 100 Things I Like About Myself
6. 100 Questions I Want Answers
7. 100 Ways To Improve My Life
8. 100 Things I’ve Accomplished In My Life
9. 100 Things I’m Feeling Stressed About

(The truth is there are many things you can write about and you can search for 100 lists of things to start with, if you have no idea what you want to write about).

Come up with as many ideas as possible for each topic. You know the sky is the limit. The ‘100’ is just a number and you can always exceed if you have more ideas.

This is how you can write effectively without having to search for endless information on the web or read countless of books. Just take a few minutes aside to come up with a list of hundred things.

Sometimes, this is one way to gain even more ideas for a few more articles or projects. The best part is while you work on this list, you are also getting to know yourself better in a way that you start to bond with yourself. Sometimes, the things that you do not know about yourself will emerge at this time.

By getting to know yourself better, you will know what you can write the best and therefore you can work out the best masterpiece such as a great book or a great article.
