We have all been there. The page is blank with anticipation. You can seem to feel the vibration of the keys that you want beneath your fingertips, but have no words to compensate them. Your inspiration is at a loss, your ideas are down the drain, and you are left with the BIG WHITE PAGE.
This my dear friends is writers block.
Many a time have I been through this torture. In fact I have went through this many times within my books. It is a dilemma we must all face as writers, but it doesn’t have to be your way of life. Below I will show you how to overcome this issue through different circumstances.
If you are stuck on the imaginative side of any project than you need to read. Reading helps make the creative juices flow, and as soon as you get your ideas back immediately stop the reading and turn your words into a page of wonder.
Other ways you could come up with more ideas is by simply watching a movie, surfing the web, and even just talking to your best friend or next door neighbor about what they think. If you are at a loss of creative ideas than you must look elsewhere for them.
Inspiration has Disapeared-
I have felt this very often. Its not that you lose inspiration for the passion you have with your book, but rather, you lost interest in your writing at the moment. You feel like “Eh, I can do this tomorrow.” or “I’m not really feeling like writing today.”
My answer to you is follow nature. I have mentioned it better in my other post Nature’s Blessing ( https://a0willow.wordpress.com/2013/04/13/natures-blessing/ ) if you would like to go more in-depth with this section.
Nature gives you a chance to connect with your surroundings. When you connect with things you tend to feel more inspired with them as well. Get outside and breathe in the fresh air.
Don’t Know the Next Step-
If you are currently writing a book or a short story and are clueless as to how the next part is going to go- skip this section! If you have ideas for what comes after that particular part than trudge on through. The more you write your book the easier it is to know what you want to do with it.
Writers Block is one of the most infamous struggles writers must face. If you have writers block at all there are a few key things you can do to help yourself: read, write something different, take a break to get inspired, and brainstorm with friends. If that doesn’t help at all and you still can’t think of anything I would stop working on your project and try to write for something else.
Hope that helps and let me know if you have any Q’s.
