Break Writer’s Block

15 Apr

Having trouble reaching your word count for the day? Here are some ways to beat that pesky writer’s block:

  • Go for a walk — a change of scenery can get those plot points moving
  • Turn up the music — the music can stir up ideas for new scenes
  • Turn off the music — take a deep breath, relax, and empty your mind in the quiet
  • Read a good book — great writing can spark your own writing
  • Read a bad book — then go and rewrite it into something better
  • Switch writing styles — try longhand if you’re used to typing, or vice versa
  • Coffee — stay awake and write with new-found energy
  • Doodle — sometimes we just need a different outlet for our creativity, whether it’s drawing, dancing, or singing
  • Switch P.O.Vs — try writing in the point of view of another character
  • In the Middle — start writing in the middle of a scene rather than writing in a linear style
  • Write anything — even if it’s, “I don’t know what to write.”

How do you get rid of writer’s block?

      That’s a good idea. I have a document that has a mint green background because I was getting bored. xD

        That’s odd… But whatever works! 😉
