    I'm just wondering what people use for cures to writers block. I usually either go for a walk or make tea but I'm sure there are a lot of others tips and tricks that could help.

      Try something a little stronger than tea.

        Yes, an alcoholic beverage (or ten) often helps, but not too often. I find putting yourself in a boring place, like sitting in a cafe for HOURS can inspire many things, because you relax into the boredom then your mind begins to work. Otherwise I wait until I am bursting to write something.

          There are a lot of cafes and libraries around where I live. I'll try visiting one of them next time.

      I'm not a writer but i am interested in the "mind", so how about writing about "writers block"?...Maybe if you start writing about that, maybe that would clear the block....Or are you worried about other things, that are distracting you from writing...Like i say i'm not a writer, but writers are gonna need ideas obviously...So how about drastically changing your life style, your eating habits/fitness/hobbies etc, as they always say healthy body/healthy mind, & vice versa, so maybe new things to do, could mean new ideas...

    Drilling a hole in the skull about 2 cm above your left ear usually will help you tap into your higher consciousness.  Don't worry about the unbearable pain and heavy bleeding you're going to experience, as it is necessary for a proper writer to do to eliminate all boundaries to creativity.  If you start to feel lightheaded from the blood loss this is fine, as it's your body's way of telling you that it's emptying of all negative thoughts. 

    If you have done this already, and haven't died from traumatic brain injury, and are still feeling writer's block just know that you just gave yourself an experience you can write about.

      That's a great idea. ;-)

        Now hold on.  Is that wink saying "haha that's a funny joke" or saying "I'll perform this unproven and potentially deadly stunt right away"?  I want to make sure that you're doing your part as a suffering writer.

          Can't it be both, that's a funny joke but I might have to try that sometime?

    I usually go watch something on Netflix to clear my brain of everything.

    Definitely going outside and taking a walk or riding a bike. Also just ignoring writing completely for a few days.

      Thanks for the suggestions. I'll try taking a break for a few days and going for more walks.

    Twitter. Seriously. Always find something cool, new, controversial, emotionally charged, highly intellectual, or informative. Such a "hub" of topics. Story wheel heaven ! Manja!

    If you take the apostrophe out of the title, it makes us seem like a bunch of monsters.

    I have a bunch of abandoned writings...things I started and never finished.  If I'm stuck, I go back to one of those and try to finish it up.
