Who said writers block is a bad thing?
In fact, I don’t really “believe” in it.
During the time you’re not writing, there's so much you can do inspire a writing spree.
Think of writer's block as a forced break to recharge your brain and go back to writing better and stronger.
Here are 4 things you can do to get rid of writer’s block:
1. Get inspired by things around you
I overheard random stranger conversations in the streets, I saw teenagers being rowdy in the streets and an individual with distinct features. All of these things can spark inspiration and brainstorming. How could you add it to your book?
2. Watch TV and movies
TV shows and movies have conflict which is the key to every story. Look at what takes place, the characters, the story lines, and get inspired. Imagine which actor best represents your character and so on.
3. Listen to the news
There's always a story to be heard!
4. Work on other materials
There’s always something to do. It’s like telling your boss you finished doing all your work when you still have three hours to go. Work on character layout, plan interview questions, world build, edit etc (find materials here). When you work on these things it’s hard not to get inspired again as you look at it from a different lens.
What do you think? Do you think writer's block exists? How do you overcome it?
