    Writers Block?

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by ariella, Dec 22, 2006.

    How do you overcome writer's block?

    Ok I am asking this question cause I have suddenly developed writer's block and can not overcome it what so ever.

    So people lets share some tips on overcoming that nasty little thing called:


    WRITER'S BLOCK

    Ariella,

    I'm kind of in the same boat right now. Everytime I get blocked a good friend of mine and I play the three word challenge game. She gives me three words and I give her three and we have to write a poem using them.

    :)

    But don't worry too much. Inspiration will hit you when you least expect it. I'm waiting, too!

    Writers block sucks LOL

    What I do, is just start writing about whatever is on my mind even if its just random babbling. If that doesn't work I read a book that I like or I look at art. Both of those things inspire me a lot.

    I hate the words Writers Block. But it does happen. I find for me the only way to overcome it and believe me it does work sometimes but then it depends on the type of stuff you write and thats Music. Something inspirational something that you trust will help work. But it does depend on what your writing.

    Its a not a brilliant solution but it does work sometimes for me.:)

    Music is another good way, though I find that music with words makes it hard to concentrate. I tend to listen to stuff like Yanni, Kitaro, some classical

    Flawless Tip.

    When you understand what story you want to write but are having difficulty with putting some chug into it then a good whole day at the library studying similar subject matter - I guarantee - will have those creative juices overflowing.

    Social interactions.
    When you write, you're really alone, you need a change of pace when you're getting the writers block.

    My writer's block is caused entirely by my addiction to forums. I unplug my modem when I want to write. :)

    Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I hate writer's block. My novel has come to a total stand still for the first time in a year.

    I'll give your suggestions a go, oh I hope they work. Hmmm library.....never thought of that.
