Has this ever happened to you? You’re typing away thinking you have a great story, then it dies. Poof! Gone. You don’t worry about it. You have plenty of other things to write about.
So you start another piece, an idea that’s been pinging around in your brain for a while. After two sentences, you stop. Suddenly your flash of inspiration vanishes like the friend who owes you money.
You panic. You think you’re wasting your time. You start thinking about other things you should be doing. Like mopping under the bed or dusting behind the refrigerator.
Before you know it, your writing time is all gobbled up and you feel like you’ve accomplished nothing. When this happens, you’re thinking your way out of writers’ block.
Change it up. Don’t think. Write. Commit your thoughts, doubts, and guilt to words on paper. Write about the grief of lost ideas, the frustrations of a stumbling plot, or the things you feel need doing. Write your way out of a thinking block.
You’re gonna be okay.
Thanks for stopping by!
