The thing about being a creative person is that sometimes we aren’t very creative at all.
I am pretty sure everyone is scared to write after the storm of NaNoWriMo. I sure am. XD. Many people debate writers block. Some people don’t think writer’s block is real but I do because I experience it a lot. Even right now. But fear no more here are some tips to help you! Also if you want an excuse to write, join abbys writing contest YOU COULD WIN AN AMAZON GIFT CARD and there’s some really cool writing prompts!
1. keep writing
The worse thing to do is to quit writing. Keep writing, even if it makes no sense. Write whatever thoughts are in your head, and if you have none, read my next tip below.
2. use writing prompts
Writing prompts are surprisingly helpful. Even if it has nothing to do with your story, it still keeps your writing and gets your creative juices flowing!
3. take a break
Run away with us for the summer, let’s go upstate! Heh sorry, just a little Hamilton reference XD But yes, just like Hamilton, you should take a break from writing. That way you won’t become frustrated.
4. listen to music
Music really helps. But it depends on the music you listen to. I recommend classical or chill music, not LOUD ROCK MUSIC THAT WILL STRESS YOU OUT!
5. Read some inspiring quotes
Quotes really help a lot. But don’t get too distracted, or you might find yourself browsing the web all day!
6. read a book
Read a book and you never know, maybe you’ll be inspired by the writing style or the characters.
7. have some tea
Tea is known to have a calming effect. Whenever you get ready to write, make some tea. There are some tea flavors that can lower stress.
8. force yourself to write
I know its hard but sometimes you just have to write. If you don’t then you won’t get anywhere.
9. talk to yourself
It sounds weird but it really helps
10. have fun
writing is supposed to be fun! Don’t let writers’ block get the best of you!
