If you love expressing your creativity through writing and being able to transport your readers into different worlds and stories but hate experiencing the dreaded writer’s block, you’ve come to the right place. Continue reading to discover some fun ways to get rid of writer’s block.
Oneword com website:
One Word is a website that offers a relatively simple yet addictive game for writers. Your task will be to write anything that you can about a random word that is generated for you. For example, if you are given the word “agent”, you may choose to write about the life of a double agent in Russia for sixty seconds. The only rule is that you must keep writing, without double-guessing yourself for a full minute. The more games that you play, the quicker you’ll learn to trust yourself and to write about anything that comes to mind, instead of freezing and staring at a blank document.
If you have a friend who is also a writer, you may want to play this game together. As even if you both get the same word, you may come up with completely different stories. So it may be interesting to compare the two unique stories that you manage to come up with, using the same one-word prompt.
Put a playlist on:
If you go onto Spotify or iTunes and randomize a playlist, you may end up listening to a song that may help you get out of your writer’s block. For example, you may listen to a song from a different time period, that may inspire your writing or you may come across a specific lyric that may inspire you to continue working on your current piece of work. The emotions in a particular track may also resonate with one of your character’s emotions, if you’re writing a novel, that may inspire you to continue writing.
Write in another location:
Sometimes simply choosing to write in another location can help you get out of a writer’s funk. For example, if you’ve been sitting at your laptop for hours in your home office with no luck, you may want to write from a local park, a cafe, or a car park that offers spectacular mountain or beach views. This is also a great idea if you are trying to work at home, while your friends or family members are making a lot of noise and keep distracting you from your task at hand.
Take a hot shower or bath:
If you feel tense and stressed one way to relax and to be able to get back into a writer’s grove is to take a short break in order to enjoy a rejuvenating hot shower or bath.
So if you love being a writer and the feeling of success that you feel when you finish a new book, poem, or screenplay but hate experiencing writer’s block hopefully you found the tips listed above useful. Especially if you’re currently stuck on a writing project.
