I'm trying to speed up improving my writing, as I seem to have gotten stuck in a rut. So I was wondering, has there ever been any time when any of you noticed a quick, marked improvement in your writing? What were you doing at the time that you think lead to the improvement? Were you reading more? Analyzing a bunch of stories? I'm just looking for various things to try. I'm curious particularly about prose quality, but if you noticed some activity, or mind set really helped you with say writing speed, or idea generation, I'd like to hear it. I know also that people reach plateaus and that when you break them it can sort of seem all of a sudden when really you've been working past it for awhile and it's all just finally added up. But if there are any specific activities that you found really improved your prose more quickly, that helped you make a breakthrough, I'd love to hear them. Thanks.
