Where do you get the inspiration for your creative writing? What do you do if you are having a writ
What are you passionate about,or are there any issues you have that you need to express? Writing can be very therapeutic if you are prepared to open up and share your life experiences!
Living is an inspiraiton for writing, you soak up all the experiences of your life then you put them into different circumstances and say what if? I have always been a visual person so if I am on a journey I look at what is happening around me. I also find things amusing - like other people saying odd things when they are waiting at the checkout... I play games with words.
Writers block ? Affects me sometimes but it is usually only if I am really upset about something real and important. The less time I have to write the more urgent it feels to write.
I enjoy mostly positive related experiences or encounters and I focus on that because that Is what I choose to remember. I always keep in mind if I have to talk about this topic verbally what or whom do I choose to discuss.
Travelling or going to new places always gives me something to write about. If you're really stuck, try going to a museum or to another kind of public place. Or, think of a topic that interests you and do a little reserach on it. You might dig up something to write about in what you find.
Writer's block? Pick an object within view, any ordinary object. When I had writer's block I chose a red building block and finished a very well liked poem about it.
Just write. Once you begin your creativity will start to flow.
Creative writing, whether creative non-fiction, fiction, or poetry is a craft you have to work at. The more you write, the better you get. The more you read, the better you get. Having a regular writing routine is imperative. Even if you spend the time you've blocked for writing sketching the basic nuances of a character or a rudimentary story outline or even a list of unrelated words that you like, you are writing. Writer's block comes to everyone and is best dealt with, I find, by not dwelling on it. When it comes, I just brainstorm ideas whether they are related to a current project or not. This keeps me thinking and often inspires me. Good luck and keep reading and writing:)
There are so many ideas in real life, especially from stupid people. Start by reading a lot, and listening on other people conversations. Expand on that. A story starts with a problem, make that problem something your readers cares about.
i take all of my problems in my real life and twist and turn them into into problems that my characters have. what helps me with writers block is not dismissing even the tiniest detail of what happens in everyday life, inspiration comes in the strangest forms.
It comes from the minutia of life. A song on the radio might make me think of a character. Then, while cooking dinner or taking a shower the little spark of an idea grows and expands out into other characters, settings, plot ideas, etc.
Writer's block? Honestly, the only way to break through it is to sit down and force yourself to write. Do a few simply exercises without a specific goal in mind. It will come back.
Unless the block comes from burn out. Then I take a day or so off to do something else.
Writer's block is entirely in the mind I suggested some ways around it in an earlier hub.
Ideas? Read a newspaper. Every story is a 'story' that can be developed. Journalists are creative writers. That's why they cal their stuff 'stories'.

I'm not exactly the most experienced writer, but I do enjoy it. The problem is deciding on what to write about. There's so many topics that have already been written about. Even topics I've written on have already been written about. So how do you decide what to write?

What do you do when you get writer's block? Am I the only one that has trouble getting...myself in the mood to write? Or, am I the only one that has trouble getting ideas "out" of me onto the computer (or paper)? I constantly run into this problem. I have so many novels in the works, and...
