Sometimes I feel like doing something (let's say writing an article about the lovely weather today) but I do not know what to write. How to describe this phenomenon?

You have the intension to do something, but you do not know where to start.

You might say you are blocked, frozen, at an impasse, or at a loss (“unable to know how to act or what to do”).

If it is due to lack of knowledge, consider clueless; if due to lack of direction, rudderless or drifting; or if due to lack of insight, uninspired.
