Can anyone help me get rid of my writers block???
I've been trying to finish my book and for some odd reason I can't. Everytime I sit down to do so I get all mind boggled and nothing comes out. Someone Please Help!!!!
Unfortunately, I think that happens to all writers at some point in time. Personally, I think you will be fine if you just accept you need to take a break and get it off of your mind for a while. Getting the stress out of your life for a while will do you wonders.
See thats the problem I've taken over 6 months off, and I still can't just sit down. And the last time I did sit down I came up with something that didn't come close to my book. *sigh* Never knew it would be this hard to write a book Lol...
So sorry. I know it will come back. Just try and relax. That's what writing should be, Relaxing.
For me doing writing exercises gets my mind flowing and usually allows me to get over my writers block. You can look up tons of great writing exercises on the internet. Also reading helps me because it gets ideas popping into my mind again. Good luck!
What helps me sometimes is to get out and do something physical and interesting that might be related to the story in some way. Does your character visit museums? Is the story connected to history in some way? You might go to a museum. Along the same lines, go somewhere new and go in character...at least in your mind. Something to jump start the imagination. Be sure to take a notebook along, because sometimes it's lost by the time I get back to my computer, but with the notes, the inspiration stays fresher in my mind.
Use this website http://writeordie.com/#Web+App. Right now. Set your word goal at 1000 and leave the other settings alone. Hit "write" and don't stop until the timer runs out. You might end up with something, or you might end up with jibberish. Either way you have words on the page.
Writer's block doesn't exist, it's you giving yourself excuses to not write. Doctors don't have doctor's block, plumbers don't have plumber's block. Writer's don't have writer's block, they have excuses.
Set the timer, write the words, see where the story goes. Even if it ends up being totally ridiculous. If it doesn't work, write the ending again.
A less aggressive alternative is to set a kitchen timer for an hour. Sit at your computer or with a piece of paper. You don't have to write but you can't do anything else, no doodling, poetry, or character outlines. You have to write or sit there.
