Have you ever found yourself in a writing slump? Do you have trouble coming up with new topics to write about? Maybe you feel like there’s nothing l left to say because it’s all been said already.
The thing is, there is no such thing as an original idea. I hate to break it to you, but it’s true. All ideas come from other ideas. My idea for this blog came from reading something someone wrote on LinkedIn.
So why would I write about it if it’s already been written about? Because no one’s heard what I have to say. And the same goes for you. What you have to say matters.
Coming up with new ideas is hard. Putting words to them is even harder. That’s why it’s important to work with your mental health copywriter to figure what you’re going to say. How are you going to write about new ideas in mental health?
Coming Up With New Ideas
One of the hardest parts of writing is deciding on a topic. Coming up with new ideas is difficult, but like I said before, what you have to say matters. So whatever topic you choose, the world needs to hear about it.
Now, there are exceptions. As a mental health professional, you want to make sure you’re writing about relevant topics. You shouldn’t go off on a rant about the latest trends in intermittent fasting unless you tie it back to mental health. You could write about the mental health implications that intermittent fasting has on people who do it, though.
Although it may feel difficult to come up with an original idea (which I’ve already said doesn’t exist), not all the good ideas are taken. What you have to say matters. Even if the same thing has been said a million times, it hasn’t been said by you.
New ideas in mental health are difficult to come by. But new takes on old ideas are a great place to start. Everything we say is built on top of something we’ve learned, read, or heard.
When I write a blog for someone, for example, I do a ton of research on that topic. I take pieces of what I’ve read and incorporate that into the piece. Coming up with new ideas is tough. Reappropriating existing ideas is also tough, but that’s the job. It’s all about using what you’ve learned and using it to inform what you have to say. And what you have to say matters.
New Ideas in Mental Health
One of the things I love about writing for therapists and other mental health professionals is the collaborative process of coming up with ideas for topics. I’m specifically talking about blogs, but it oculd be anything. What do you want to say in your newsletter? What messages do you want to send in your email sequence? What story does your website tell?
It may feel overwhelming when I ask you “what do you want to write about?” But I”m here to work with you to figure that part out.
The hardest part is getting hung up on whether your topic is an original idea. Sure, there are new ideas in mental health, but they came out of other ideas. You probably have come up with a bunch of new ideas, but you may not think they’re worth writing about because someone else has written about it before.
But that’s what research is. It’s based on other people’s ideas and other people’s studies. You’re adding value to the mental health field by putting your idea out there. One day someone will cite you.
What You Have to Say Matters
You’re establishing yourself as a thought leader in your field. You do this through your writing. This is why it’s important to find a mental health copywriter who works with you to get your message across. Because what you have to say matters.
You’re an expert in your field. Shouldn’t the world hear your thoughts? Don’t you want to share your latest research? That idea you’ve been sitting on for months is ready to spill onto the page.
And the best part is that when you hire a mental health copywriter, you don’t have to actually do the writing yourself. This saves you precious time that you don’t have to spend on writing blogs, emails/newsletters, and other types of copy.
