Do you ever get writer's block?
Finding ways to ease the mind when you have writer's block. What helps you think better so you can write?
oh yes! I step away from the project. Take a walk or read a book. Anything to step back and not think about writing for a few minutes. The upside of writers block is that inspiration can come back full force and you won't be able stop! Good luck on future works!
I agree with youngmom - stepping away from a project definitely helps. I also learned a trick in my creative writing seminars at school that seems to work well for me - if you're really stuck, sit down and just write 500 words without thinking about grammar, flow, how it sounds, etc. It can be 500 really crappy words. But it usually gets me thinking in a new way about the project or reveals something about a character that suddenly makes me want to write again.
I get writers block when I am tired and stressed. As soon as I am rested I am fine again.
Oh yes, if I'm tired or stressed it's almost impossible for me to write anything.
I don't get writer's block so much as writer's exhaustion where I look at the project and it just seems overwhelming. I am editing and reworking an long abandoned manuscript of mine. It is a good story but I look at the work involved and I just feel overwhelmed.
Writing is for me just a hobby, so I don't think consciously about writing, the inspiration usually comes to me in the middle of the night or on my regular walks in bush or next to ocean, if I don't write it down soon enough it is all gone...some ideas I manage to scribble down and some not...
I'd answer this question, but I just can't seem to get my thoughts together enough to compose a cogent answer!
Oh, like YOU could've resisted, people!
I JUST a few moments ago described that my clarity and "idea generator" seems to function best AWAY from the page/screen! That's just unfair and NOT funny, raght thay'er, folks! Maybe if I actually started USING/carrying my voice-activated recorder, I could, well, *record* my ideas as they come without anxiety and boredom getting in the way!

I keep starting hubs and then losing interest in finishing them. I think it's because I'm really not sure what to write. One thing I have found out though, is that if I know someone wants to read about it, I get inspired enough to work on that hub full force. (Too bad I don't get many requests and...

What is Writers Block?Personally, whether I write a Short Story, or a Poem, it has been running around in my head for days or weeks, it seems. And then suddenly, I just have to write it down, from top to bottom, in a frenzy, regardless of grammar, until feel it is ended. Later for the...
