10 ways to bust writers’ block

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!

Feeling sad?/how to stop crying and start smiling

Helloo<3 Welcome back to my corner of the web! I am not sure if you are sad or hurting right now, but this post is for you.

//how to survive those hot summer days//

how to survive those1.png

why hello there!

Fun fact! It’s summer! As much as I love being able to stay up late and going to the beach, it gets quite hot where I live. This seems like the hottest summer ever in Ohio! Most days have been almost 90 degrees. I am someone who is veeeery sensitive to weather. I tend to overreact a lot… and when it’s hot I feel like I am melting into the ground XD. giphy (3).gif

Since I’m taking college classes (I made a post all about it here ) I haven’t been going outside too much but when I do IT SURE IS HOT. Now if you live in a place that stays mild all year long then that’s awesome! For Ohio, the weather seems just CRAZY all year, each season you don’t really know what to expect. Anyways, if you live somewhere where it gets super hot in summer, I have some tips for you how to survive!

Sometimes the best thing to do is stay indoors. Try rereading your favorite books, binge-watch youtube, find a new fandom to obsess over, write something, animate, draw, try something new! If you’re looking for a new show to watch, try Free Rein or The Legend of Voltron.

ALWAYS HAVE A WATERBOTTLE HANDY

I mean it! Having water at your side not only keeps you hydrated but it makes you feel happier and more energetic too!

Stray away from dark colored clothing! It really helps! Also, try to wear loser clothes, it lets air flow throughout your body easier!

❀Draw with Moi: pastel beans + trying to make stickers❀

draw.png

 

why hello there!

❀greetings and salutations!❀

❀Welcome back to my itsy-bitsy corner of the web! Today I’m going to be doing a DRAW WITH MOI!❀

Let’s GET STARTED❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀

First of all, I’m starting off with a BLANK PAGE. Thankfully Mr. Artists Block didn’t stop by for a visit, but time will tell. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) (sadly I forgot to take a picture of the blank page)

 

So I took out most of my art supplies so I can have literally every shade I needed. I’m using my watercolors, Prismacolor pencils, and my ohuhu markers.

❀LET’S START DRAWING❀

So I’m forcing myself to draw more male beans (adorable male kiddos with fluffy hair to be exact) because I am not really good at drawing males so I just made a page to draw them all. So I’m starting off by making a sketchy circle with my yellow colored pencil.

IMG_1479
le messy circle ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) 

 

Now I’m adding what I call guidelines for the face and adding more shape to the face.

a beautiful anime style head

Now I am adding the neck and the shoulders. I am not that good at drawing shoulders, because whenever I draw shoulders, one shoulder is poking out in an awkward position and it just looks weird.

IMG_1481
the shoulder got messed up

So, sadly the shoulders didn’t turn out that good. 😦 But it still is a pretty good drawing I suppose.

Oh dear, don’t cry smol bean!

poor smol bean is crying

ITS OKAY YOUR PERFECT THE WAY YOU ARE! This is why I don’t usually critique my art in front of them, surprisingly, they have feelings too.

IMG_1482

Alright So I drew a shirt, and This is what I call a headshot, I’m not drawing full bodies because that is EXTREMELY HARD. I usually accidentally give them curves because I’m so used to drawing girls.

IMG_1483

SO I GAVE him FLOOFY HAIR!

IMG_1485

BECAUSE HE’s A FLOOFY HAIRED BEAN!!(ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧(ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧(ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

Sadly the camera’s battery died so I wasn’t able to photograph the rest of my drawings drawing process, BUT YOU CAN STILL ADMIRE THE BEANS because after it was done charging I took some pictures of them.

IMG_1515

Put masking tape over it so the paper would be glossy.

IMG_1541

Last, of all, I decided to draw a bean that wasn’t so pastel.

Ahem, this is why I don’t draw full body males because I always accidentally add a curve XD.

IMG_1543

♥5 minute Raspberry Smoothie♥

img_5068

heyo Welcome back to my small corner of the web! Today I am going to be sharing how to make an AMAZINGLY delicious smoothie that will give you day a great start! And naturally, boost your energy!

lets get started

 

img_5069

You can always add extra ingredients if you like, but if you want it to turn out the way mine did, then I recommend following the recipe!

ʕ•̫͡•ʕ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʕ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʕ•̫͡•ʕ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʕ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʔʕ•̫͡•ʕ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʕ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʕ•̫͡•ʕ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʕ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʔʕ•̫͡•ʕ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʕ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʕ•̫͡•ʕ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʕ•̫͡•ʔ

First of all, we are going to put the raspberries in the blender, I used half of the bag, you can use more or less, depending on the flavor and texture you want.

IMG_0643

Next, I will add 1/3 of a banana as a natural sweetener. You can add more or less, I recommend adding just a teensy bit or the smoothie will taste more like a banana smoothie than a raspberry smoothie :D!

IMG_0644

Next, I will add a teaspoon of Honey, you can add as much or as less as you want to depend on how sweet you want your smoothie to be! I am also adding a cup of water.

IMG_0646

Now its time for the fun part! BLENDING THE FRUIT TOGETHER!!!!

Remeber to put the cap on! Don’t want to make a mess! You can blend it for as long as you want, depending on how you want the texture to be.

IMG_0648

After blending it for some time it should look like this! When it gets to your desired texture, stop the blender and pour into a mug, jar, or even a SAUCER!

IMG_0650

And there you go! YOU just made a yummy, healthy smoothie! CONGRATULATIONS!
