Finding something with meaning

I am having hard time writing about something that would evoke any kind of emotion. I would like to know something that has deep emotional association

Hmm, hard to really comment without knowing what sort of idea you have but I would have to say focus on your characters... have a good think of their motivations, their personality and the ways that people may empathize with them.

Dig into yourself. What is it you are emotional about. Death, love, nasty people, religion, there's a million things. I find getting into the psyche of the character is easier for me than story. Just dig into yourself with a real and honest approach to pain, anguish, happiness, whatever. You might become more familiar with your Self. Trust your Self, your subconscious, your instincts. Do this: look at a blank screen. Write a sentence. Whatever, it doesn't matter. Go on to the next and the next and sooner than later you will hear something click. That's where you begin. Also, take Mr. Nysos advice to heart.
