Two Tips That Seriously Work
I have two no-fail methods of curing my own writers block:
#1: Look around you and open your eyes to the lives of the things and people around you. What about that great tree in the park? How old is it? What kind of changes has it seen? Everything has a personality—a story. Write it.
#2: Dump. I’m serious. Grab a pen and paper, open a new note tab, or just type here on Prose. Start writing and don’t stop until your mind is empty (or close to it). Can’t start? Pick a letter. Write your thoughts—all of them. When you’re done, look back and glean ideas from there. To quote from one of my previous posts: “Some of our best ideas are hidden deep in the recesses of our minds.”
