    Getting back into writing--some ideas?

    Discussion in 'General Writing' started by Shane Grayson, Oct 11, 2012.

    It's not writers block, but just writing in general.

    I had a job opportunity for this Solar company
    and I read an entire book on solar electricity.
    Ever since I did that, it has been incredibly difficult
    for me to get back into reading my classics and writing.

    Any ideas, exercises, or words of encouragement?

    I would just sit down and try to write something. It doesn't have to be perfect or even a great story, but just something to start working your writing muscles again. Whatever pops into your head, make a story up about it. Maybe something that has to do with solar electricity/energy, since you probably know a lot about that now.

    just go back to reading fiction, if that's what you want to write... i don't get why that should be hard for you to do... what am i missing?

    Indeed, we think that reading short stories regarding your favorite topic; the matter that will re-encourage writers read larger books.
    Also, reading magazine articles on the topic would give new ideas on scientific development regarding it.
